With so much new technology coming into our lives, both as motorists and in a general sense, it worth examining what we mean by a ‘connected car’? Definition: A connected car is a car that is equipped with internet access, and usually also with a wireless local area network.
Computers in modern cars already track engine and driving data. You have probably noticed your local garage promoting an ‘engine diagnostics’ service. When your vehicle comes in for a repair or service, this information is downloaded using the diagnostic port, to help your friendly technician diagnose faults.
The big difference and step forward with a connected car, let’s call it ‘moving up a gear’, is that this data can be transmitted directly in real time. Your car can monitor for unusual activity and send it’s performance data to the service centre to assess whether it needs to be remotely tuned or repaired.
One of the major industries likely to be disrupted by this technology is the motor insurance sector. Connected car insurance polices have already started to gain traction both in the UK and the US. Leading insurers such as Allstate with it’s Drivewise device have been tweaking their policies to take into account real time driving data.
Well, how can this benefit you the motorist? Quite simply, it WILL help deliver cheaper car insurance premiums, across the board, for safer drivers. If you brake gently, avoid late night drives and drive moderate distances at moderate speeds you will see a reduction in your motor quotes. Currently as a safer driver you are paying for higher-risk drivers.
Regular monitoring will help drivers to view their driving behaviour, and change it if necessary to improve their insurability. Constant connectivity could mean premiums change on a weekly or even daily basis – imagine that!
