The truck-mounted system would monitor driver performance and physical condition-behavior to determine onset of unalertness that could lead to an accident. The report describes the large truck simulator, tests using the simulator on driver subjects, and th, specifications for onboard driver alertness monitoring and driver warning system for in-mine testing.
