DriveQuant, a company that develops services for collecting and analysing driving data from physical models such as measuring driving safety, the environmental impact of driving, fuel consumption etc, is launching a mobile application dedicated to improving work-related road safety for fleet managers.
Named LÉA, it is a turnkey solution consisting of a mobile application installed on the smartphone of fleet drivers that allows them to analyse their driving behaviour, coupled with a driver management platform. This application allows the fleet manager to carry out a diagnosis of driving behaviour in the company, to help his employees improve their driving skills through embedded automated coaching features (driving tips), but also to create commitment by rewarding good driving behaviour through the organisation of driving challenges.
Offered in the form of a monthly subscription, it requires no dongle or telematics box. Once installed on the driver’s smartphone, the application automatically detects motorized trips using the smartphone’s sensors. Driving data is then collected and driving behaviour analysed in real time.
After each trip, LÉA by DriveQuant gives the driver indicators that reflect his driving: a safety score and a distraction score. Finally, a trip history is available in the application so that each employee can follow his progress, access driving tips and try to become a better driver by improving his scores.
The safety score is calculated according to the type of vehicle (physical characteristics), the number of detected high-risk driving events (sudden acceleration and braking, crossing adherence thresholds) and the road context (traffic density). The distracted driving score (between 1 and 10) is calculated on the basis of the number of times the driver unlocks the smartphone screen detected during a trip, but also the time spent and the distance covered with the screen on.
The solution is managed from a web platform for driver administration. This interface allows the fleet manager to invite his coworkers to install the application, organise drivers into groups, monitor their performance, create driving challenges based on the driving scores, or even send messages to drivers directly into the application.
