Research Methodologies and Statistical Approaches to Understanding Driver Fatigue Factors in Motor Carrier Safety and Driver Health

The CNSTAT study panel completed the following tasks: Evaluated and identified the most promising data collection methods for improved understanding of factors related to commercial motor vehicle driver fatigue, safety, and health. Reviewed data collection methods, including survey techniques, naturalistic driving studies, and electronic logging devices. Examined issues relating to the analysis of vast stores of data. Identified priorities for future research that could improve the validity and generalizability of relevant knowledge. Assessed the usefulness of fatigue management and monitoring technologies to provide data for fatigue- and safety-related HOS research. Assessed the usefulness of data and statistical models that would assist FMCSA in their research to improve highway safety by reducing fatigue. Assessed statistical methods used to analyze data sets generated by driver monitoring technologies.
