À propos

We are...

a multidisciplinary team of researchers, mobile and backend developers, physicists and data scientists aligned on a common objective : to understand driving behaviours to improve road safety and reduce the environmental impact of mobility.


Our mission

Over the past decade, mobility has been undergoing radical changes, including the electrification of vehicles, the end of the single ownership model, the emergence of shared and green mobility, and the rise of connectivity across all modes of transport.

This revolution is affecting the entire mobility ecosystem and is forcing insurance companies to adapt their business model to these new realities. Indeed, the insurance industry is deeply impacted by the growing need for more connectivity and data, to enable more accurate underwriting and large-scale prevention initiatives. This has led to new car insurance products such as behavioural-based insurance (Pay-How-You-Drive) and usage-based insurance (Pay-As-You-Drive) programs.

In this challenging environment, DriveQuant’s mission is to describe and quantify all forms of mobility in order to make roads safer and reduce the environmental footprint of mobility.

To achieve its goal, DriveQuant has developed a universal SaaS solution that uses the smartphone’s sensors to analyse driving behaviour. The algorithms analyse real-time data collected by mobile sensors and calculate the safety and environmental impact for every trip.

This information is then transparently returned to the driver to make them aware of the quality of their driving and the opportunities for improvement.

DriveQuant’s team believes that by empowering and coaching drivers, a radical change in road safety is within reach.


Our story 


DriveQuant was founded in 2017 by two engineers from IFPEN (Institut Français du Pétrole et des Énergies Nouvelles). Concerned about the environmental impact of mobility, Philippe and Olivier have developed a mobility measurement solution to reduce its environmental impact and improve road safety. 

Our solution has already convinced many players in the insurance sector. We help them market new mobility offers such as Pay-As-You-Drive and Pay-How-You-Drive insurance. DriveQuant also guides private companies in the deployment of eco-prevention and risk-reduction projects.









The Geco application


In 2014, the Geco mobile app was launched to encourage eco-driving. This unique app uses algorithms similar to those implemented for vehicle energy management. In this way, we prove that phone sensors, combined with physical algorithms, have the capacity to measure driving energy efficiency and coach drivers to reduce their environmental footprint. Our approach is validated and remains in place to this day.

The B2B project


From this technology base, Philippe Moulin, Olivier Grondin and Jérémy Bayle decided to extend this approach and build a platform of driving data analysis services for mobility companies. The service portfolio is extended to include road safety analysis for the connected insurance market.

The DriveQuant brand


Our first customers connect to our platform. We create the DriveQuant brand which translates our business and our ambition to quantify driving and transform complex data into simple, honest and actionable indicators. We become convinced that the smartphone is the perfect tool to collect massive amounts of driving data and to engage with drivers.

Creation of the company


The first projects are successful, the market is confirmed. On February 6, we founded DriveQuant, the first startup company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of IFPEN to improve the two main problems of mobility: road safety and environmental footprint. In an emerging market in France, we are becoming the pioneers of smartphone telematics.

Deployments in the insurance market


We are launching several insurance offers in France with APRIL Moto, Altima, MAIF. Our solution integrates iBeacon technology capable of identifying vehicles and our eco-driving and safety services are completed by an innovative solution to help drivers to reduce phone use while driving.

Release of the DriveKit SDK


We created the second generation of our SDK: DriveKit. This unique SDK enables players around the world to access telematics effortlessly. We launch an even more powerful version of our distraction analysis service that detects phone use while driving.  We are also deploying vehicle wear and tear analysis services.

Acceleration and alliance with FairConnect


The health crisis is not stopping us and we are upgrading our distraction analysis and mobility detection services. We are also developing a solution to identify car accidents based on the smartphone's inertial measurement unit. In October DriveQuant joined forces with FairConnect, the European leader in connected insurance, to accelerate its development and continue to innovate. DriveQuant has raised 5.4 M€ since its creation.

Stepping up our international development


Launch of a smartphone-only crash detection solution. Thanks to the partnership with FairConnect and the success of our commercial activity, we are significantly accelerating our international development. At the end of the year, our solutions were deployed in 25 countries on 4 continents. We are celebrating our 40th customer since the creation of the company. We are strengthening our teams to improve the measurement and prevention of accident risk for the insurance industry.

Our culture



We are passionate engineers committed to making a difference in mobility. We use our scientific knowledge to innovate, create value and impact society. We define ourselves as experts in measuring mobility and its environmental impact. 



Working at DriveQuant is first and foremost a personal commitment to making a difference, defending a greener mobility and improving road safety. On a more personal level, it is a commitment to give the best of yourself every day. 


Operational excellence

Customer satisfaction is our top priority. We partner with our clients to help them ensure the success of their projects. 



  • Customers: We believe that our customers must understand the fundamentals of our technology. For this reason, we have open-sourced our demo application and graphical libraries on GitHub. Plus, all the data we collect and analyze is shared with our customers only.  

  • Users: We want our end-users to understand the scores they received and their room for improvement.  

  • HR: Our management is also transparent. We organize regular meetings with the Team to keep it informed of the financial health of the company. We also frequently exchange  with members of the Team on the quality of their work and their evolution at DriveQuant.



Launched in 2017, our solution has been designed according to the principles of data privacy by design and is 100% compliant with the GDPR. We are fully transparent about the data we collect and how we use it. Plus, we made the choice to base our entire cloud infrastructure in Europe (at OVH) to strengthen the trust between us, our customers and users. We put trust at the heart of our relationship with our end users and our success depends on it. We are therefore very keen to preserve it.
