Case Study – Fleet Telematics



How you are driving influences, without any doubt, how much energy you consume and the wear of your vehicle’s components, i.e., powertrain, brake wear, and tire wear. The EU project MODALES, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, aims to tackle the challenges to enhance low-emission practices and suppress high-emission behavior.
Focussing among others on the driver, as one critical factor, the 19 project partners were looking for a solution to analyze and assess driving behavior based on mobility data.


The three-year project with nine pilot sites in Europe researched the identification of low-emission driving style that can be fostered through driver training, a driver support app, and guidelines for regular maintenance to ensure efficient, resource-saving conduct on the roads.

The project collected driving and location data via their mobile application. Looking for a solution to enrich this raw GPS data with context and gain insights into the factors influencing low-emission driving, they selected Motion-S’ mobility analytics API suite. Sending the generated raw GPS data to the platform allowed them to create their data lake. Motion-S provided the project with a set of callbacks for getting the trip-based raw (JSON) augmented and profiled data to the project team’s endpoint. During the augmentation phase, more than 100 different information elements are added to each location and road segment of the trip, e.g., road characteristics and quality, road topology and limitations, traffic signals, and weather information, to name only some.

Motion-S’ mobility data analytics platform provides contextualized data and allows us to focus on the driving assistant’s intelligence to support drivers in driving more sustainably. We are benefiting from around fifty metrics deduced based on GPS coordinates. A further advantage is that it allows us to save anonymized rich data, and not only raw GPS coordinates.

Drive Safely, Drive Results: How Insurers Use Predictive Data to Improve Pricing and Reduce Road Risks

Remember the early days of the pandemic? Cities became ghost towns, and public spaces were no longer public, as everyone locked in to avoid getting infected. COVID has affected most aspects of our lives, and mobility was no different. With work and school going remote and traveling severely limited or outright prohibited, roads emptied. As a result, traffic remained light—even though driving was the only way to get a little taste of the outside world for many. … Read More
