Incentives for Deployment of Onboard Safety SystemsWebsite or Online Data - 2007
As part of an ongoing research project evaluating onboard safety technologies, this report identifies potential incentives that could expedite the deployment of onboard safety systems into the marketplace. The objective of this report is to outline possible ways to incentive through either tools of government or private industry the procurement and utilization of onboard safety technologies. This report describes the five major stakeholders highlighted in the onboard safety technology incentives matrix: technology manufacturers, truck original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), trucking companies, insurers, and government agencies. The primary sources used for the compilation of potential incentives were industry stakeholders who offered their insights on incentives and related issues. As a result, the information provided in the following sections about incentives does not constitute an endorsement by FMCSA. Although the report can be helpful to the general public in understanding the deployment of new safety technology for commercial motor vehicles, the report is primarily targeted toward commercial motor carriers and their drivers.
