Wejo Group, a global leader in Smart Mobility cloud and software solutions for connected, electric and autonomous vehicle data, announced a collaboration with Ford Motor Company in Europe which gives Wejo access to personalized connected vehicle data from Ford vehicles across the continent.
This supports the provision of data and insights to insurance providers that leverage user-based intelligence for end-to-end insurance. Insurance providers, in turn, can leverage the data to better understand driving behaviors and to drive efficiencies, including by minimizing fraud.
As part of this collaboration, Wejo leverages Ford’s end-to-end data consent process through which the insurance company gains consent from the customer to access the personalized vehicle data such as vehicle location, speed and mileage. Once provided, that consent is then passed back to Ford through Wejo to release the data for analysis and insight. The connected vehicle data is then passed back to the insurer to establish usage-based end-to-end car insurance policies that are appealing to the customer based on their safe driving or limited mileage.
The partnership focuses on defined data sets created specifically for end-to-end insurance in Europe. These data sets, coupled with Wejo’s broad range of capabilities and experience in interpreting historic and real-time connected vehicle data, including over 76.7 billion journeys to date collected from approximately 13 million connected vehicles , create an opportunity for deep insights and understanding, as well as furthering its promise of data for good.
