Blacktrack Demonstrate Telematic Crash Recorders at Thatcham Research Centre

Blacktrack recently demonstrated telematic crash recorders in front of representatives of a leading European insurance company. Thatcham organised a low speed collision between two family saloons each of which was fitted with a telematics crash recorder. Within a minute of the collision, a text message had been sent to a mobile phone giving basic details of the crash, and soon after the full crash data was sent to the Blacktrack website.

Thatcham are particularly interested in using telemetry to deter exaggerated or fraudulent whiplash claims and to analyse the driving styles of young drivers. It is hoped that by offering incentives for good driving, insurance companies can reduce the very high premiums incurred by young and particularly young male drivers.
