As accidents with trucks have a large influence on traffic flow, a large pilot on the effect of driver assistance systems was kicked off in July 2008 in the Netherlands. The primary goals of the pilot are to assess the potential for improving safety and maintaining traffic flow. The potential contribution of driver assistance systems to these objectives will be determined with 2550 trucks from about 100 transport companies. Each truck is equipped with one assistance system and a registration unit for monitoring driving and vehicle behaviour.
