Sygic helps increasing driving safety with a unique gamified driver scoring algorithm
Sygic is exhibiting at the Gurtam IoT zone at GITEX 2019! Today, we're telling about a new driving safety solution offered by the company. Sygic is joining efforts with O2 Slovakia to contribute to road safety by using its unique technology.
The mobile operator with more than 2 million customers is releasing a new version of a free application with integrated navigation, which rewards drivers for safe behavior on the road with free data.

Driver Scoring is integrated into the Sygic SDK and can contribute to the goal set by European Commission to reduce road fatalities by 50 percent by 2030.
The SDK with Driver Scoring algorithm, developed by Sygic, measures current speed and detects if the driver uses a mobile phone, with no additional hardware needed. Based on these two variables, it calculates the final score. The higher it is, the better the chance to get the reward. If drivers complete 10 trips in one month, with at least 150 kilometers and score 81 points out of 100, they will get 1 gigabyte of free mobile data.

Sygic also offers the Driver Scoring algorithm as a separate SDK tailored for smartphone use and can detect up to three additional types of behavior including acceleration, braking, and cornering. Additionally, it can be easily integrated into any fleet or workforce management solution or used as a gamification and rewarding component in consumer apps developed by insurance, mobile or automotive companies.
