Internet of Things solutions for smarter, connected cities

Over the next 18 months Satsafe will be working with Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and leading technology businesses: BT, Cisco and others, to demonstrate the commercial, societal and environmental benefits of telematics technologies when deployed across various mobile IoT use cases.

Telematics, the power behind ‘black box’ car insurance, enables customers to access discounted insurance if they drive well. Through CityVerve, Satsafe is looking beyond the established market for this technology (young drivers) by exploring the potential to engage with older and other vulnerable people, taxis, minibuses for school and community transport as well as the emergency services.

Satsafe’s unique position as an incubatee co-located with The Hartree Centre at Sci-Tec Daresbury, means we have access to some of the world’s leading authorities in industrial R&D through use of high performance computing, big data analytics, visualisation and cognitive technologies. Our IoT Risk Platform has been designed from the ground up to apply Machine Learning (ML) to telematics data. Enabling a dynamic and self-learning approach, artificial intelligence of this nature has the potential to facilitate significant efficiency and performance improvements whilst optimising and improving the relevance of driver scoring  in different use cases.

GEOBLOC® driver monitoring technology

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”.

Through Project T.E.D, Satsafe is partnering with Transport for Greater Manchester and Sunderland University’s Institute for Automotive and Manufacturing Advanced Practice (AMAP) to deploy our telematics solution for a 12 month in-field research project. The aim of the project is to scientifically validate telematics technology to determine its effectiveness in reducing the risk of young drivers causing or being involved in an accident – thereby improving road safety.
