New smartphone Driver Scoring SDK for fleet drivers

Jun 11, 2019
Sygic, the Slovakian GPS navigation vendor, has unveiled a new Driver Scoring Software Development Kit (SDK) for fleets. The device works offline and is easy-to-integrate into existing fleet management systems, including mobile apps, without any additional hardware costs.

Driver scoring screenTo achieve the best accuracy, Sygic technology uses smartphone sensors including GPS positioning and accelerometers. Based on this data, the unique algorithm analyses the driver’s behavior behind the wheel in real time and generates the driver’s score. Each trip is registered automatically, with no additional driver interaction needed.

Sygic’s VP for Enterprise Solutions, Jozef Klinovsky said, “What is unique about our technology is that it gives advice to the drivers at the time they make a mistake. Additionally, the score is stored and can be later evaluated by their company to collect rewards or create monthly charts of best drivers. We believe that positively motivated drivers make fewer mistakes, resulting in fewer accidents and better car longevity.”

Driver Scoring uses five variables to calculate the score – speed, acceleration, braking, cornering, and distraction level. Each event is recorded in the route report and streamlined directly to the driver. 

Jozef Klinovsky continued, “We have worked closely with the drivers themselves and companies with fleets. What we understood is that they expect the Driver Scoring solution to be flexible, easy-to-integrate into other apps without any further investments into additional hardware like black boxes or other devices.”

Sygic says that according to research by information management specialist Iron Mountain, the adoption of driver behavior telemetry in fleets delivers a return on investment within eight months. Companies using Driver Scoring recorded a decrease in incidents of 87% and vehicle maintenance by 30%.

The release of the SDK for iOS and Android was scheduled for April 2019.
