SmartDrive Introduces Technology That Claims to Predict Driver Performance

SmartDrive Systems, a company that uses video and analytics to judge driving performance, has introduced a data correlation tool that claims to create actionable performance comparisons across driver segments.

SmartDrive Introduces Technology That Claims to Predict Driver Performance

SmartIQ Segmentation, an expansion of the company's transportation intelligence suite, correlates a range of different data sources on and off the vehicle to draw performance comparisons among drivers, like collision versus noncollision drivers, top distracted drivers versus a fleet's broader driver population, and years of professional driving experience. These data help fleets design and customize programs, incentives and management engagement to effectively and efficiently target specific driver groups, SmartDrive says, which could lower costs and maximize return on investment.

"SmartDrive's analysis shows that collision drivers have twice as many near collisions, consume over 7 percent more fuel and rank higher in every category of distraction. Fleets need this information not as an interesting data point, but as actionable insights based on the performance of their own driver population," said Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. With this data, he added, the fleet can identify performance patterns and turn that knowledge into personalized action plans that yield measurable improvements in safety, fuel consumption and driver retention.
