Distracted Driving – the new Drink Driving – Geoff Collins – Acusensus

This paper will explore the growing issue around drivers being distracted by their mobile phone, resulting in increased numbers of serious collisions where distraction has been noted as a causal factor.

New technologies have been developed in Australia by Acusensus, where AI (Artificial Intelligence) based cameras are now being used operationally to identify drivers who are distracted by mobile devices, or are not wearing the appropriate seat belt restraint.

The results of these Australian state wide programs will be discussed, demonstrating the changes in driver behaviour that are now being observed.  This will be compared to the ongoing evaluation trials in the UK, outlining the size of the current problem and how this could be addressed operationally.
