The Floow, which provides telematics data services to insurers, has been appointed by the Renault-Nissan Alliance to deliver an analytics suite using original data from current and future generations of vehicles.
The initiative, which will see The Floow act as data analysis partner - responsible for generating a family of insurance grade scores and analytics from native equipment - is believed to be one of the world’s first ‘at source’ use of telematics in the motor industry.
Renault-Nissan, which reported record vehicle sales of 8.5 million in 2014, said the ‘highly complementary partnership’ was part of its strategic user services plan.
Aldo Monteforte, chief executive of The Floow, said: “Renault-Nissan is going to equip a growing proportion of vehicles with sophisticated sensors and connectivity.
“As Renault-Nissan telematics data partner, The Floow is ideally placed to deliver proven predictive analytics and digital end-user services that cater to the needs of the motor insurance industry.
"This crucial partnership sees our organisation move one step closer to the vision of safer and cheaper mobility for all.”
Thierry Viadieu and Redmer Van Der Meer from Renault-Nissan said: “This initiative is reflective of the innovative and ground-breaking partnership that we have established with The Floow.
"As a leading car manufacturer operating on a global scale we are committed to exploring ways in which we can improve our product and continue to appeal to the consumer.
“Working side by side with The Floow we are now looking to introduce the Renault-Nissan telematics solution to a number of insurers willing to offer integrated usage based insurance.”
