Company Summary

We solve 2 problems: unsafe driving, and driver risk level uncertainty. Our app uses smartphone sensors to collect driving data, which is aggregated over time to develop an accurate risk picture. With these detailed risk correlates, insurers can accurately price policies while offering safe drivers reduced rates and incentivizing safe driving. Our app uniquely identifies drivers and runs in the background with negligible impact on battery life.
