  • Abstract:
    The primary goal of an onboard monitoring system (OBMS) is to enhance driver performance and safety. OBMSs are employed with the expectation that feedback provided concurrently (via flashing feedback lights in the vehicle) and cumulatively (via coaching by safety managers) will have a positive impact on driver performance. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration initiated an OBMS field operational test (FOT) to determine whether onboard monitoring could reduce at-risk behavior among commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers and improve driver safety performance. More specifically, the aim of the FOT was to determine if recording and reporting of safety-critical events (SCEs), followed by driver coaching, could enhance safe driving behavior. Researchers also evaluated drivers’ and safety managers’ attitudes toward the OBMS over time. Table 1 provides the research questions addressed in the study, along with a summary of key findings.
