Increase safety department productivity, improve driver performance, and reduce accidents by up to 30%
“KeepTruckin automatically pinpoints who we should coach, and what to coach them — making my team insanely more effective.”
Every event is benchmarked against the broader KeepTruckin network, providing you with an objective measure of risk that studies show is 5x more predictive of future accidents than the industry’s leading safety score.
Our advanced event intelligence technology and in-house safety team automatically analyze each video within seconds of an event to determine both its context and severity. Managers get prioritized footage with rich, actionable insights, and drivers are automatically coached on correctable behaviors when they complete their trip.
Combine real-time in-cab alerting, automated post-trip coaching, and predictive insights from the DRIVE risk score to help reduce accidents by up to 30%.
Use DRIVE to pinpoint who to coach, what to coach them on, how often you should be having coaching conversations, and understand how your efforts have impacted driver performance.
If you are on KeepTruckin’s Pro or Enterprise plan, DRIVE is included in your subscription and available to start using at no additional cost. There is no work required to turn it on—simply log into your Safety Hub to get started.
The DRIVE score is available after four weeks of data are accrued on a new driver. Similar to a credit score, four weeks is a sufficient amount of time to understand his/her driving habits and provide an accurate score.
The baseline is generated based on the relevant recorded driving data we have collected from our network of over 400,000 vehicles. This baseline is updated quarterly.
DRIVE currently looks at hard brakes, hard accelerations, speeding (defined using the flow of traffic), hard-cornering events, and HoS violations. In addition to the event type, DRIVE also evaluates the location in which the event occured, as well as vehicle class.
When an event occurs, the DRIVE model looks at the specific road segment and evaluates the attributes (intensity, duration, etc.) of that event and compares against the baseline of driving behavior for that road segment and vehicle class. The further over the baseline of the intensity and duration of the event, the more negative impact that event has on the score.
Within a safety event, DRIVE calculates intensity and duration in addition to the road segment and vehicle type against the baseline to determine how the score is impacted. This means the score increases or decreases depending on how consistently the driver performs above or below the expected baseline.
If your driver has proven to be a good driver with a score well above the KeepTruckin baseline (average) and he/she has a bad week— their score will not drop dramatically. The model knows this driver historically performs above the expected baseline. Their driver score might shift a few points down that week, but in the following weeks it will return to where it was if this one week was truly an anomaly.
Fleets are scored weekly based on drivers who drove within that week. We take a modified weighted average (based on miles driven) of driver scores to get the fleet average. Ex: A driver who drove 1,000 miles would count only 1.5x more than someone who drove 100 miles, as opposed to being 10x more if you did a simple average weighted by distance.
