This has already begun with the onboard devices of the insurers for their new "pay how you drive" business model : the idea of ​​car insurance companies is to modulate princing according to the dangerousness of behavior. Then every driver becomes unique and pays an ad-hoc price: An embedded device in the vehicle (or App... [Lire la suite]

Some drivers are quiet but still dangerous (in a road safety point of view) : Most people think that brutal drivers (strong braking, etc ...) are dangerous.

A responsable driver is as most Eco as he/she can and always safe (road safety is not an option at all). This application leads to behaiour diagrams :  Road safety and Ecodriving are two completely different ideas that are not correlated : the 4 combination exist : . safe and non eco. eco and non safe. eco and safe....

NEXYAD ADAS : comparison of 4 driving behaviours using SafetyNex and EcoGyzer

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are a nex field of development and economic growth in the automotive sector. Many tools are under construction in order to prevent the driver from many mistakes that may lead to accidents. This even might lead in certain condition to autonomous driving (driving delegation). Insurance companies are interested in such systems.  Especially those who want to implement an efficient "pay how you drive"tarification/pricing. NEXYAD developed an onboard module (called SafetyNex) that scores road... [Lire la suite]
