Mentor by eDrivingSM uses smartphone sensors to collect and analyse data on the driving behaviours most predictive of risk. These include Acceleration, Braking, Cornering, Speeding, and Phone Distraction, one of the biggest threats to road safety today. Through eDriving’s partnership with industry analytics leader FICO®, driver on-road performance is converted into an individual FICO® Safe Driving Score, which has been validated to help predict the likelihood of a driver being involved in a collision. Personalised insights are provided privately to drivers after each trip, showing both positive and negative driving events and exactly where they occurred. Additionally, engaging, interactive micro-training modules are delivered directly to the driver in-app to help promptly remediate identified risky behaviours.
eDrivingSM helps organisations to reduce collisions, injuries, licence endorsements and total cost of fleet ownership through a patented driver risk management programme.
