Vehicle Identification

Our telematics solution works 100% with the smartphone's sensors. It can also be combined with affordable and smart connected devices to identify the vehicle, detect trips if the smartphone is turned off and protect the driver with an accident detection device.


Our connected devices are easily placed in the glove box or on the windshield of the vehicle. They are automatically recognized by our SDK and mobile applications. With this unique technology, it is possible to recognize the vehicle being driven and track its mileage accurately. It is very useful for Pay-As-You-Drive insurance products.

Crash detection

We analyze the signals measured by the accelerometer and gyrometer to detect collisions. This solution is designed to assist drivers in the case of collision and to facilitate the claim management by the insurers.


Our solution works with the phone's sensors. It can also rely on sensors installed in the connected box that is fixed on the windshield of the vehicle. These two systems can work independently or together to maximize accident detection and reconstruction.

Advantages of the connected devices


Easy to install

The driver can simply install the connected device in his vehicle. Our devices connect via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) with our mobile applications and SDK.

Reduced costs

Reduced costs

Our connected devices are more cost-effective and reliable than traditional systems connected to the vehicle's OBD port. It does not require maintenance or an installer.

Crash detection

Crash detection

As an option, our connected device can be equipped with an accelerometer and a gyrometer to analyze the vehicle's movements and identify collisions.

Vehicle identification

Vehicle identification

The smartphone identifies the driver and the connected device enables vehicle identification. It helps to manage shared vehicles, precise monitoring of mileage and the vehicle's state of health. 

Automatic trip recording

Automatic trip recording

With the connected device, auto-start is even more powerful thanks to the iBeacon standard, which is easily detectable on iOS and Android phones. With this system, the vehicle's mileage estimation is almost perfect.

User privacy

User privacy

If the mobile application is linked to a connected device, the trip recording is restricted to the vehicle in which the connected device is installed in order to protect the user's privacy as much as possible and to limit the smartphone's battery consumption.

Make an informed decision

What is a beacon?

A beacon is a Bluetooth transmitter whose signal is recognized by the phone. Placed in the glove compartment of the vehicle, it limits data collection to the vehicle in which the beacon is placed. It is a battery-powered transmitter. It does not collect data. The smartphone/beacon combination can therefore be used to record the journeys of a single vehicle.

Is it necessary to pair a beacon?

The beacon does not pair with the phone. We simply ask the user to go into the application settings and enter the ID key written on the beacon so that our application recognises the beacon. The user then simply needs to place the beacon in the glove compartment of the vehicle.

What is a beacon used for?

Our smartphone technology does not require a beacon to work. Adding a beacon simply allows to identify a user's vehicle with certainty. Thus, if your client has two vehicles, only one of which is insured with you, the beacon will serve as an identification tool. Only trips made in the vehicle where the beacon was placed will be registered.

Does the beacon collect driving data?

No. The beacon does not collect any driving data. It is only used to identify with certainty a vehicle.

How to install a beacon in a vehicle?

A beacon does not require any specific installation or connection to the car. Just put it in the glove box of the vehicle.

Are beacons compatible with all cars?

Yes. You just need to place the beacon in the vehicle's glove box.
