IMS’s DriveSync platform enables the Internet of Things (IoT) to offer connected car, home and lifestyle services to users.
Waterloo, ON (Sept. 8, 2015) – Intelligent Mechatronic Systems (IMS), a leading connected car company and IoT solution provider, is showcasing the DriveSync® platform’s ability to deliver a suite of connected life services – from in-market connected car services to forward-looking home and lifestyle capabilities.
“As a pioneering platform in the IoT space, DriveSync leads the delivery of today’s popular connected car services with the technology necessary to deliver tomorrow’s next-generation lifestyle-based services,” said Dr. Otman Basir, CEO and Founder of IMS. “Insurers, governments, fleet organizations and consumers alike can rest assured that investments made in current products and services powered by the DriveSync platform are future-proofed in visionary services and experiences.”
With over 170 patents and patents pending, IMS’s DriveSync platform enables all facets of the Connected Life:
- Connected Car: Today, the DriveSync platform continues to deliver and build-out new experiences for a growing list of core connected car services that include usage-based insurance, driver coaching, vehicle maintenance, integrated roadside assistance, green driving reports, data analytics, road-usage charging, fleet management and more. To encourage safer, smarter and greener driving behavior, DriveSync provides driver coaching tips, alerts and notifications in-car or on smartphones, with the capability to also extend to the latest wearable technologies.
- Connected Home: The DriveSync platform harnesses technologies available today to deliver the latest in home telematics services. Leveraging context, proximity detection and in-home smart gadgets where available, DriveSync can analyze data about home temperature, occupancy, water leak status, carbon monoxide and smoke detector statuses, home alarm systems and door entry to provide individuals with peace of mind through home monitoring services. This same information can also be provided for third-party opt-in programs – for example, home insurers can offer awards and discounts to owners that demonstrate regular occupancy and care.
- Connected Lifestyle: The DriveSync platform has the capability to offer individuals incentives for healthy behaviors and smart lifestyle choices. Using innovative health telematics, the DriveSync platform delivers a wellness score to individuals by analyzing a number of behaviors that can include steps walked per day, average daily gym visits, and average hours of sleep, to list a few examples. In turn, health conscious users can submit their wellness score to receive rewards and discounts for third-party opt-in programs, including discounts on health and life insurance premiums.
To illustrate how the DriveSync platform delivers on the promise of the Connected Life, IMS demonstrated these capabilities at the 2015 Insurance Telematics USA conference in Chicago, September 2-3, 2015.
