The car industry is in the middle of a generational shift in how we view mobility. Increasingly, drivers are anticipating the trend towards autonomous, connected, electrified, and shared (A.C.E.S.) vehicles.
We believe there is an opportunity to harness driving data and use it to improve transportation: both for cars today, as well as vehicles of this connected future.
Currently, there are a billion cars on the road and almost all are mechanically elaborate (average 30,000 moving parts) and technically complex (a new car might have over 100 million lines of code). Yet, we believe, few cars are 'smart', nor do most automakers centrally capture the data from their drivers. Dash changes that, bridging that missing connection between automobiles and the cloud.
By leveraging driver behavior data and vehicle performance data directly from our 'Drive Smart' product users, and our machine learning capabilities, Dash creates algorithms to enhance actuarial risk analysis, as well as predictive maintenance models, infrastructure planning, policy recommendations, and advertiser targeting. In addition, Dash's data can be used to inform autonomous vehicle driving models, by better anticipating the behavior of surrounding human drivers.
Dash's mobility suite has created products for the consumer (hardware, plus software for iOS and Android, installed by nearly 447,000 users in over 100 countries since 2014), enterprise (insurers, OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, government agencies, advertisers) and developers (API, SDK).
Commercial partners include Ford, Johnson Controls, Mann+Hummel, Department of Transportation NYC, AllState, REMA Insurance, and more.
