Outfitting a Freightliner Tractor for Measuring Driver Fatigue and Vehicle Kinematics During Closed-Track Testing 942326
This paper describes the instrumentation used to study how the control inputs of 17 long-haul truck drivers were affected by fatigue. The task required outfitting a test vehicle to accurately measure the following control inputs and resulting vehicle behavior:
Steering wheel angle and angular velocity,
Accelerator pedal angle and angular velocity,
Driver EEG and heart rate,
Clinical assessment of driver fatigue,
Vehicle lateral lane position, and
The location and mounting procedure of each instrument as well as the sampling requirements for each device are discussed. Also discussed are the methods of data handling and storage.
