CityVerve Manchester – Official Partner

As lead partner for the Road Safety work package in CityVerve, Satsafe aims to demonstrate the commercial, environmental and societal benefits of  telematics technologies when deployed in different use cases. These include cycling and motorcycles, vulnerable drivers (young and elderly), taxis, school transport, couriers and light commercial vehicles owned and operated by private companies.
 
GEOBLOC® – our family concept of remote sensing devices, merge satellite positioning data with micro sensors to provide high performance and radically low-cost , professional monitoring solutions to many market verticles.

Telematics Young Driver Use Case

Each year, nearly 500,000 young drivers take to the road for the first time and of these, 1 in 10 will have an accident in their first six months of driving.  Young drivers (aged 17-24) are involved in 20% of all serious accidents yet make up just 8% of the driving population.

Our Aim: “to develop innovative, GPS-based products and services that influence driver behaviour in order to reduce accidents and save lives whilst reducing environmental impact”.

Transport for Greater Manchester has contracted with Satsafe to deploy our telematics solution for a 12 month in-field research project. Working in partnership with the Institute for Automotive and Manufacturing Advanced Practice (AMAP) from Sunderland University, the aim of the project is to scientifically validate telematics technologies to determine their effectiveness in reducing the risk of young drivers causing or being involved in an accident – thereby improving road safety.

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).

Breaking News…

Following our success as a finalist in the UK leg of the European Space Navigation Competition, Satsafe Technologies has won a place at the European Space Agency’s Business Incubation Centre.  This year long programme effectively de-risks our product developments by accessing funding, technical and business support from some of the very best engineers in the world.
Satsafe are delighted to have the opportunity to work with ESA BIC both at Harwell and Daresbury to help us to transform space technology into successful, vibrant, non space-related products across many IoT applications and verticals.
