RideMetric Technology


The main component of the RideMetric service is a detection engine that incorporates state of the art technologies and the phone's internal sensors to capture, measure, analyze, and classify driving behavior on the phone in real time. The detection engine provides extensive information about individual driving habits and safety, and identifying phone usage is a big part of this (every year thousands of accidents occur due to the hands-on phone usage while driving). The following events and metrics can be classified by the detection engine. Detailed and granular information can be obtained for each event.

Trip Metrics
  • Trip duration
  • Trip Started
  • Locations

Risky Events

  • Hard Braking

  • Ended the call
  • Made the call
  • Text message received

In addition to its core telematics capabilities, RideMetric provides a robust set of complementary technologies that enable delivery of value-added services such as anti-texting, parental controls, access to the RideMetric cloud to the individual users for self-check, and others.
