New app shortens roadside stops for heavy vehicles

Australia’s National Heavy Vehicle Regulator is improving safety, situational awareness and productivity on Australian roads through a mobile app from Motorola Solutions.

The app is helping NHVR officers track roadside checks online. Roadside stops have reduced as a result, from an average of 35 to 15 minutes.

NHVR officers have also reduced “double handling” when recording vehicle and driver intercepts, using the new app.

The Regulatory Compliance Mobility Solution (RCMS) application allows NHVR officers to seamlessly track roadside checks online. Double handling has been reduced when recording vehicle and driver intercepts, issuing electronic compliance notices. This will also enable supervisors to review and approve officers’ work on the spot.  

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said the technology is delivering greater efficiency while making necessary roadside checks more convenient.

“Ultimately, this is about streamlining our processes and data sources at roadside checks so operators can work more efficiently and businesses can keep moving,” Mr Petroccitto said. 

The information being captured is enabling greater collaboration and data sharing among industry, and officers and drivers alike have given the technology positive feedback.   

Motorola Solutions Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand Con Balaskas said development teams and the NHVR had worked collaboratively throughout the ongoing Cov id-19 restrictions to deliver the application.

“By employing a digital-first approach with the NHVR, we were able to continuously improve the solution based on user feedback while working safely and in remote environments,” Mr Balaskas said.

“The end result is an easy-to-use yet sophisticated mobile solution that enhances productivity across the NHVR workforce and leads to greater road safety in Australian communities,” he said.

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) administers a single set of laws for all heavy vehicles over 4.5 tonnes gross, enabling the sector to meet industry standards for safety, compliance and regulatory performance across Australia except the Northern Territory and Western Australia.

The Regulatory Compliance Mobility Solution (RCMS) is an end-to-end mobility solution delivering digital transformation to NHVR’s frontline safety and compliance officers. 

It provides real-time access to heavy vehicle registration and driver’s licence details as well as other essential information to streamline and automate the way NHVR officers work.

The solution is based on the same proven technology used by police officers within Australia and Asia to manage their daily workflows on the frontline.
