Each trip you take is scored out of 100. Your score is based on how well you perform in these 5 categories:
Using these factors, Onlia Sense determines how your driving behaviour decreases, or increases, the likelihood of getting into an accident while on the road. Simply put, the safer you drive, the higher your score is.
Acceleration, Braking and Cornering measure how smoothly you drive and steer during your trip.
Speed measures how well you stick to road speed limits.
Contextual accounts for the risk of driving on a particular road type (urban street, rural road, highway) and being on the road during certain times of day. For example, it’s riskier to drive on a country road at night than it is to drive on a city street in the day. Here’s how we break it down:
- Driving at night is riskier than driving during the day. It’s safest to drive in the morning (from 5am to 9am).
- Daytime weekend driving (Saturday and Sunday) is generally safer than driving on a weekday.
- Generally speaking, driving on major streets in an urban area during peak periods and at night is the deemed to be the highest risk.
- Driving on a highway through a rural area during the day is generally the safest way to drive.
Along with these 5 factors, the app also monitors distracted driving which is defined as how long, and to what degree, your mobile phone is used while driving. Not touching your phone at all is considered a totally distraction-free trip.
