THIS ROAD APP CAN AFFECT YOUR INSURANCE PREMIUM
Qatar Mobility Innovations Center (QMIC) and Qatar Insurance Company (QIC) have signed an agreement to work together in introducing state-of-the-art applications and services that will enhance road safety through innovative insurance offers and incentives
The partnership will lead to the pilot of the Masarak's intelligent Telematics Platform as a means to be used in assessing drivers' behaviour. The in-vehicle device will be able to collect data for evaluating key driving habits, including: harsh acceleration, harsh deceleration, over-speeding and distance driven. All these factors will be used by the Masarak iFleet cloud-based system to compute the driver scorecard, where drivers can be then compared and ranked. This will eventually be used to identify a set of performance indicators which can enable the delivery of new Pay-How-YouDrive insurance plans, which can serve as a key motivator to keeping driving habits in check and support road safety.
