Our Story

DriveEDR™ was founded by a team of IoT, vehicle safety system, and connected car veterans who saw there had to be an easier and  better way to deliver improved data, at lower cost to the demanding auto insurance industry. Harnessing the power of the latest sensors, advanced algorithms, smart phones, mobile networks and cloud based servers, we deliver better vehicle data, and real differentiation to auto insurers. Greater insights into car usage, driver behavior and real time collision reporting also benefit managing general agents (MGAs) and brokers, key players in delivering commercial and personal insurance to the market. Small and medium sized businesses (SMBs), who operate insured vehicles every day, enjoy a better experience with their carriers, which leads to more loyalty, and ultimately lower cost of operations.

The average small fleet has specific needs and constraints that often do not apply to operators of large, self insured or partially self insured fleets.  Fuel waste, pooled vehicle use, limited budgets, no IT staff and other constraints are common. The team at driveEDR designed their platform around the unique needs of auto insurers and their SMB customers.   Plug and play sensors are easy to install, visible to the driver resulting in greater compliance and driver confidence. Drivers can use any vehicle in the pool and the system will recognize the driver and report accordingly.  Real time feedback to the driver when limits are exceeded, improves safety, and lowers risk and results in lower claims and costs.   Please get in touch to discuss how we can help you.

Plug and Play Sensor Pairs With Driver’s

Key to the success of any vehicle IoT or telematics product is ease of use and system reliability. Our plug and play sensor quickly inserts into your vehicle’s standard 12V DC power outlet. This ensures high rates of adoption by your drivers, continuous power, rigid mounting (important for capturing collisions) and easy removal ensures drivers can bring the device with them when they are off the clock, or swapping to a different vehicle.

Experience has shown that plug and play sensors, fitting into easily reached outlets on the car’s dashboard or header unit, enhance adoption by users compared to OBD II style dongles which require drivers to search for, and insert properly in order to work.

Plug and Play Sensor Is Easy to Use.

Once plugged into the car’s power outlet, the IoT sensor connects to the driveEDR app on the driver’s smartphone, using its onboard BT radio. The green LED on the sensor lets the driver know his phone is connected. The sensor also has a USB port used to charge the phone.
