Powerful New Technologies Are Impacting Trucking Safety and Future Risks
Zach Brogadir June 02, 2016 Posted in: Blog Posts, Telematics / UBI
Recent technological advances have been shaking up industries with traditionally lengthy, stable histories. Just look at how the taxi industry has been impacted by ride sharing apps like Uber and Lyft. The trucking industry is just as vulnerable to change. New technologies are impacting the way trucks are driven and causing us to consider whether we even need humans to drive them at all.

Google Compare: A Textbook Case of Innovation Gone Right
In 2011, Google purchased BeatThatQuote, an auto insurance price comparison site in the UK. This led to the launch of Google Compare in the UK in 2012, and provided auto insurance quotes from participating insurance company partners to internet searchers. In March, 2015, Google announced the launch of a similar insurance aggregator site in the United States called “Google Compare for Auto Insurance.” Today, February 23, 2016, less than one year after launching the site in the US, Google announced that it will be shutting down Google Compare in both the US and the UK.

This year at the Insurance Telematics USA conference in Chicago, Illinois, there were a variety of presentations regarding the future of telematics, potentials for the devices, smartphone apps, data, and how Usage Base Insurance (UBI) is evolving in the US. The over-arching theme of many presentations centered on adoption, or rather, the slow adoption seen in the US and what can be done to increase acceptance. The insurance industry is focusing more attention on increasing UBI adoption, and statements like “UBI is just around the corner” were repeated throughout the conference. In spite of this, wide adoption seems elusive in the US.
