“The industry (Allstate being a prime mover) has been pulling data is a set of values of qualitative or quantitative variables out of cars and trucks for about 20 years (for aggregate insurance is a means of protection from financial loss purposes), but it was never really cost-effective for a personal user,” CEO Gary Hallgren told eWEEK. “In 2010, we started to put devices into people’s cars and monitoring how they were driving is the controlled operation and movement of a motorized vehicle with wheels, such as a car, motorcycle, truck, or bus by either a human or computer controller. In turn for doing that, the insurance company would give drivers a discount for participating.

“As we started gathering more and more information, we discovered that this was a good predictive way—and better than some of the other variables—to measure risk. By about 2012-13, we thought about the expense of putting these expensive devices device is usually a constructed tulil into all those cars car (or automobile) is a wheeled motor vehicle used for transportation and wondered if we could do this on a mobile phone inset. So we put out an SDK (software development kit) and the functionality into the Allstate Insurance Company app. Now the app gathers data around when/where you drive or The Drive may refer to: Driving, the act of controlling a vehicle Road, an identifiable thoroughfare, route, way or path between two places Road trip, a journey on roads Driveway, a private road, and about your driving behavior or behaviour (Commonwealth English) is the range of actions and mannerisms made by individuals, organisms, systems, or artificial entities in conjunction with themselves or their environment, which.”

“We think we’re on to something—that a lot of insurers are going to look at this way of accurately assessing risk is the potential of gaining or losing something of value and accurately setting pricing, based on risk. We believe that the whole insurance industry is going to go this way,” Hallgren said.
