Intact Financial and TrueMotion partner to encourage safer driving
First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Drivers are being monitored in Canada as part of a partnership to encourage safer driving. Insurance firm Intact Financial says telematics provider TrueMotion’s mobile platform will help it measure the behaviour of drivers who are covered by its policies. The idea is to encourage safe driving habits.
The project involves collecting data from 430,000 clients’ smart phones, or form devices in their car. Intact will use the information it gathers from the opt-in scheme to offer cheaper premiums to drivers who show they are driving safely.
