Singtel and AXA Insurance jointly launch smart car solution for a better and safer driving experience
May 16, 2017
Singapore, 16 May 2017 – Singtel and AXA Insurance today launched Singapore’s first smart car solution aimed at promoting better and safer driving habits. The solution, comprising a Modus smart car device and cloud-based smart car application, analyses driving patterns through a vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) port.
Upon complimentary onsite installation, the Modus device will synchronise with the smart car application on customers’ smartphones over Singtel’s mobile network. The solution provides the driver with insights on areas such as braking, acceleration and speed, which can help improve driving techniques and behaviour and enhance road safety. With these insights, drivers can also adjust their driving patterns to lower fuel consumption and troubleshoot potential engine problems.
Mr Yuen Kuan Moon, Chief Executive Officer, Consumer Singapore, Singtel, said,
“The smart car solution is yet another innovative service that we are bringing to our customers, following the successful launch of Singtel SmartHome. Now, our customers can enjoy an integrated connected lifestyle both in and out of the home. The solution will allow car lovers to track their driving habits and empower them to have a smarter drive. They will also be able to drive more safely, maintain their cars in tip-top condition while making the roads in Singapore safer for everyone. Singtel looks forward to launching more solutions that will enhance our customers’ digital lifestyles and enable them to enjoy smart living.”
