Singtel and AXA Insurance has launched Singapore’s first smart car solution aimed at promoting better and safer driving habits. The solution, comprising a Modus smart car device and cloud-based smart car application, analyses driving patterns through a vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) port.
Upon complimentary onsite installation, the Modus device will synchronise with the smart car application on customers’ smartphones over Singtel’s mobile network. The solution provides the driver with insights on areas such as braking, acceleration and speed, which can help improve driving techniques and behaviour and enhance road safety. With these insights, drivers can also adjust their driving patterns to lower fuel consumption and troubleshoot potential engine problems.
· Driver analyses on areas such as braking, acceleration and speed
· Real-time location monitoring (to easily find your car)
· Trip history
· Engine health information (battery voltage and engine temperature)
· Driving scores (based on driving analyses)
· Scheduled maintenance reminders
· Alerts for speed limits, geo-fence boundaries, drive times and mileage limits
As part of this initiative, Singtel and AXA Insurance are offering a year of free AXA car insurance worth S$5,000 to the safest driver in Singapore. To qualify, customers must sign up for the solution, activate their smart car devices and drive at least 3,000 kilometres during the contest period. The winner will be determined by the Driving Score computed on the smart car app.
The smart car solution is available on a 24-month contract. To enjoy the service, customers need a Singtel postpaid mobile plan and a new Singtel MobileShare subscription. The smart car solution comes with a Modus smart car device and Modus smart car cloud subscription for 24 months.
