2016 saw a shocking 10% rise in traffic fatalities - the sharpest increase since 1996. Here we assess the tech that's steering distracted driving from prevention to causation and management.

  • Understand the multiple facets (e.g. infotainment, mobile compatibility) contributing to distraction resulting in rising premiums and increased costs for insurance companies
  • Incorporate a distracted driving score as a key factor of risk based on smartphone use, both active (e.g. text messaging) and passive (e.g. GPS navigation)
  • Measure the impact on risk as OEMs add features like ESC, FCW and AEB to vehicles. To what extent is ADAS contributing to diminished situational awareness in drivers?

*ESC - Electronic Stability Control | FCW - Forward Collision Warning | AEB - Automated Emergency Braking
