SmartDrive debuts SmartIQ Beat, a transportation industry insights and trends blog

SmartDrive Systems has announced the debut of SmartIQ Beat, a blog focusing on a range of transportation industry insights and trends from safety and operations to technology and regulatory compliance, from an analytical viewpoint. Smart IQ Beat Snapshots provide in-depth analysis and metrics of top fleet performance trends based on SmartDrive’s database of over 140 million analyzed and scored driving events. The inaugural SmartIQ Beat Snapshot examines one of the major cost drivers for fleets today: collisions.

The SmartDrive Collision Snapshot for trucking illuminates key observations that distinguish collision drivers (those involved in at least one collision during the analysis period) from non-collision drivers. Notably, data analysis clearly demonstrates that collision drivers are less safe, consume more fuel and are more distracted across the board when compared to non-collision drivers (as seen in the graph above). Furthermore, it is evident that near-miss collisions—particularly those involving a pedestrian—are a key indicator of future collisions. The full Collision Snapshot is available here. Significant findings related to collision drivers, by the numbers, include:

  • 26.7% higher safety score as compared to non-collision drivers;
  • 7.5% lower MPG than non-collision drivers;
  • Two times higher near collision rate;
  • More distracted across all categories.

“The SmartDrive platform was architected to deliver on the promise of big data analytics, which uniquely positions us to provide fleets with advanced predictive and prescriptive insights not available from other solutions,” noted Steve Mitgang, chief executive officer of SmartDrive. “With over 140 million analyzed, scored driving events in our database coupled with the continuous telematics data, the high quality analysis we derive provides deep situational and operational awareness to our customers.”
