Investigation of Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Cumulative Fatigue Recovery Periods: Literature Review

Governments and the trucking industry would like to provide an optimal regulatory and operating framework within which Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) driver fatigue can be better managed to reduce its contribution to collisions. There is insufficient scientific information concerning the length of time required for drivers to recover from various types of work schedules, particularly night schedules. The goal of Phase I, Investigation of Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Cumulative Fatigue Recovery Periods: Literature Review is two-fold, first to review literature related to recovery and second, to develop experimental protocols to examine driver recovery needs. These protocols will be further developed in Phase II of this project, once information has been collected on typical CMV driver schedules through a questionnaire survey.
