Wearable safe connected car driving ready from IMS’s DriveSync

CCE_AngleIntelligent Mechatronic Systems (IMS) will premeire the IMS totally connected car at Telematics Insurance in Chicago this week. The car knows if the driver is sleepy or hungry and also knows the whether the weather needs more attention. The system is more than a back seat driver, it is a connected front seat driver, giving the driving voice commands to drive better.  And better drivers, get better insurance rates.  This system is live and working on a Fiat and is not a concept car. It uses the DriveSync platform.

It is system that severely injured Tracy Morgan wished Walmart drivers used.

They’ll show  real-time driver coaching, wearable health monitoring  and distraction-free technology for smarter driving.

With wearable tech connections in the DriveSync system data is extrapolated into anticipated driver behaviors.

The sensors detect sleep patterns, glucose levels and abnormal heart rate detection to learn drowsiness and potential health risks. Before each journey, DriveSync analyzes weather and traffic information to predict expected road conditions.

While driving, the DriveSync connected car platform also instructs drivers when when unsafe behaviors are observed;  speeding, harsh cornering and tailgating.

DriveSync also connected to UBI insurance systems with:

  • accident detection,
  • notice of loss,
  • claims management,
  • green driving reports
  • roadside assistance.

IMS claims that DriveSync’s infotainment system gives safe access to: email, text notifications, music and social media integration.
