Telematics sensors measure how, how much, when and where a vehicle is operated -- thereby providing significant opportunity for insurers to better serve their customers in a number of ways. Premiums determined using this data are much more accurate than those calculated based on traditional factors, and consumers understand why their driving data impacts their premium. When a crash happens, insurers can provide emergency assistance and settle claims more efficiently. Finally, the insurers can counsel customers on changes they can make to reduce the odds of having an accident. This session will discuss these use cases as well as highlight some of the challenges, such as Data Privacy concerns.


  • What is telematics?
  • What is telematics-based insurance? This section will discuss some of the common product variations and sensor solutions. The benefits and challenges of telematics (e.g., data privacy concerns) will be highlighted.
