“We’ve found hard braking to be one of the most highly predictive variables for predicting future crashes.” – Progressive Insurance
Coaster® ties harsh braking driving to location for risk mapping and risk reduction!
Mapping Harsh Braking for Smart Cities, Fleet Vehicles, Less Stop and Go Driving
Coaster®, the Smooth Driver Monitoring App is useful for changing driver behavior on routes that a driver frequents, such as daily commutes or delivery routes. Coaster monitors driving for sudden hard braking, logs the locations of the abrupt hard braking, and displays the locations on a map. Over time, there may be clusters of markers observed at certain locations, indicating higher risk. Where there are clusters, traffic engineers may research the issue, fleet managers may re-route and/or train, or drivers may change behavior and instead “coast” through those areas where frequent harsh braking occurs.
