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.

Building a rewards program that really works

Amid the accelerating economic recovery, the competition in the motor insurance market is intensifying. To make up for the losses sustained during the pandemic, insurers are unlikely to cut down premiums to incentivize customers. Instead, they will look for other methods to attract and keep them. But how to put new life into the hackneyed world of bonus rewards and privilege points? You’ll find some ideas in this article. … Read More

Fleets Optimization Analytics

Optimizing your fleet’s composition. Get ready for the electric-powered autonomic future! 

In any business, those who can predict the future and adapt to coming changes have the least downtime and waste, which greatly impacts the bottom line. Conversely, companies unprepared or resistant to transformation have had huge setbacks or even gone out of business throughout history. When we consider the fleet management industry, this is no different. Is now the time to leap into electric vehicles? What about autonomous cars? Fleet management data analytics can help you decide if and how to integrate EVs and AVs. … Read More

Profiling and Clustering Drivers to Improve Your Insurance Products

Road accidents are one of the major public health threats globally, and the human factor is the main contributing force. To account for this fact, insurers have long applied harsh acceleration, braking, and cornering (ABC) events to analyze driver behavior and inform their pricing models. However, this method has some limitations. Telematics-based contextual driving behavior analytics surpasses them, giving insurers and fleet operators a much better way to evaluate risks posed by individual drivers. … Read More
