HERE Technologies recently announced a partnership with CarVi Inc. to provide better insights into driver behavior, improve driver safety and help with driver coaching.

The new partnership provides greater intelligence for insurance risk analysis and helps consumers reduce insurance premiums, according to the companies.

CarVi is using HERE location services to combine its telematics data with real-world location intelligence to create contextual insights about driver behavior and in turn create a coaching mechanism for drivers.

Specifically, CarVi has a dash cam with computer vision technology backed by six sensors, which captures telematics data with video in real time. The resulting video is instrumental in faster claims management for insurance companies, fleet owners and ride-hailing drivers. CarVi has a user-friendly app to support the installation and usage of the solution.

“Understanding the car and driver in the context of real-world situations will transform road safety, which is core to our mission of ‘zero road accidents,’” said Kevin Eunsu Lee, CEO and founder at CarVi. “From that perspective, this partnership with HERE Technologies will be instrumental in helping us to sharpen our data analysis with contextually relevant insights. We are very excited about this relationship and look forward to the innovation we can deliver to the market together.”

According to the companies, the new partnerships will benefit these enterprise customers:

  • Insurance providers gain contextual awareness into driver behaviors to improve their underwriting process.
  • Policy holders get peace of mind from driver monitoring and ultimately lower insurance costs due to improved behavior.
  • Fleet and ride-hailing companies gain visibility into driver behavior and can closely monitor driving habits, ultimately boosting performance and customer satisfaction.
  • Automakers can easily add CarVi into their vehicles to enable internet connectivity, enhanced safety and 3-D road data collection.

“Driver safety is a key application of HERE location intelligence, and we are thrilled to partner with CarVi to take it to the next level through their AI-powered driver assistance solution,” said Jason Bettinger, senior director, and head of consumer tech at HERE. “HERE is committed to delivering accurate, fresh and global coverage of our location data to continue to help keep roadways and drivers safe.”
