At the time of commencement of this study, around 1,300 people died, and 33,000 were seriously injured, on Australian roads annually. This project aimed to provide Australia with answers to some intractable, high priority, road safety problems that cannot be answered using current methods.
It used a revolutionary new approach, the naturalistic driving study, to analyse and understand what people actually do in real time when they drive their cars, in normal and safety-critical situations, and provide a paradigm shift in the way road safety data are collected and analysed.
The project derived new injury countermeasures that will save hundreds of lives and prevent thousands of serious injuries. The 3-year project involved equipping 400 cars in Australian cities with state-of-the-art technology to measure driver behaviour and examined targeted road safety issues contributing to crashes and near-crashes.
