Telematics are an in-vehicle system that collects driving data. Telematics are sometimes paired with a system to provide real-time and/or post-drive feedback to the driver. This seminar will focus on the potential value of telematics feedback to improve safety outcomes and driving performance for young, novice drivers.
During the seminar, Professor Teresa Senserrick from CARRS-Q will describe the wider context for the potential value of telematics in improving young driver safety. Teresa will discuss the developmental factors during adolescence that impact on young novices’ ability to safely manage their driving, as well as insights from recent and current research into the value of driver feedback.
Dr Amanda Rawlinson from the NSW State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA) will provide an overview of the Young Driver Telematics Feedback Trial, including the:
- road trauma problem being addressed
- the telematics-based feedback system trialed
- trial participants
- types of feedback provided to participants
- safety-related trial findings
