GEOBLOC®OBD – is our simple, plug in telematics device that enables the remote monitoring of any vehicle’s physical characteristics as it is being driven. The device has an industry-leading, high speed sampling rate with the ability to record up to 1,000 data points per second (10x more data than other current-generation technology). This capability means that we can very accurately account for events in near real time and especially when needed most: during an accident.
By using the accelerometer to track the orientation and acceleration of the vehicle, it takes driver behaviour observation a step beyond GPS and enables a level of detail not seen elsewhere in the market. This heightened insight is invaluable as it provides an opportunity to immediately detect accidents and to provide faster emergency assistance to drivers.
For insurers, the ability to accurately reconstruct accidents enables them to ascertain exact cause more readily. By commencing the claims management process sooner also protects their business and their customers from fraudulent and spurious claims (Crash for Cash).
