Driveway Software to Conduct Telematics Data Challenge
Aug. 13, 2014—Driveway Software will conduct a telematics challenge to test which insurance telematics solution most effectively tracks driving behavior, the company announced on Tuesday.
The test will measure three drivers for three weeks, using two insurance telematics devices: A smartphone UBI platform and an onboard diagnostic (OBD) device.
The company said results from a larger sample size over a longer time period will also be compared.
Data will be tracked and recorded in several categories, including acceleration, braking and cornering, time of driving, distance driven and type of driving.
The challenge will compare the data collected by the OBD device and the smartphone app to determine which insurance telematics method most effectively measures driving behavior.
The results of the Driveway Data Challenge will be revealed at the Insurance Telematics USA 2014 event in Chicago this September.
