A new platform from “Agero,” a self described “transportation solutions” company, recently launched a holistic crash detection response system. The platform is called Driver360 and comes in the form of a software development kit, which can detect car crashes within 30 seconds and alert first responders, insurance carriers and tow services. Basically, it taps into an artificial intelligence and smartphone sensors to detect the crash automatically after it has occurred. The company claims that the technology correctly identified 95 percent of crashes in which an airbag deployed and 88 percent of wrecks requiring a tow.
The initial report to the insurance company provides speed, location and other relevant information. It can also record other trip level information for driver scoring and coaching. While this may seem efficient, it can also lead to insurance companies denying claims over information they receive from the platform. Technology can sometimes malfunction so if the information is in some way inaccurate or downright incorrect, the insurance company could use it to deny claims or increase premiums.
