Australian Heavy Vehicle Regulator Deploys Mobile App
Tuesday, February 18, 2020 | Comments

Australia’s industry regulator for heavy vehicles is deploying a new mobile application from Motorola Solutions to increase safety, situational awareness and productivity for its workers.

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) administers a single set of laws for all heavy vehicles over 4.5 tons gross, enabling the sector to meet industry standards for safety, compliance and regulatory performance. The mobile application delivers vital information to NHVR’s safety and compliance officers while they are on the move. This includes heavy vehicle registration numbers, driver’s license details and other information from the regulator’s database.

NHVR Director of Information and Technology Mark Radovic said the application would streamline, standardize and improve the way the organization carries out on-road compliance nationally.

“Previously, complex daily tasks including calculating the weight of vehicles and issuing traffic infringement notices was quite a manual process,” Radovic said. “Now, officers can complete these activities on-the-go via mobile devices and immediately send the information they capture in the field directly back to base. The application is helping our frontline personnel gain access to NHVR intelligence data. It allows them to work more efficiently, which means they now have more time to target their engagements with heavy vehicle drivers out on the road, and promote national safety.”

A desktop version of the application also enables supervisors and system administrators to monitor information and intelligence as it is captured in the field. The mobile application also helps NHVR meet a major goal of its Safety and Compliance Regulatory Platform program by integrating and centralizing all key heavy vehicle operator information collected on-road, in the one place.

The managed service will run for three years with the potential to extend to a total of seven years. The mobile application was implemented in partnership with NHVR by Gridstone, an application development firm that Motorola Solutions acquired in 2016.

The solution has rolled out in Victoria and will be expanded to South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia throughout 2020.
