RouteWise helps drivers to better understand their exposure to traffic crash risk along a specified route, while providing trip feedback and safe alternate recommendations.
It does this through a wealth of capabilities, which are wholly based on the fundamental insight that a small set of locations consistently accounts for a considerable portion of total traffic crashes.
Utilizing your smart phones built-in sensors, RouteWise runs unobtrusive in the background and automatically detects when a driving session begins and ends. It then tracks your entire trip and provides you with a Route Risk Score, which is created by analyzing historical traffic crash data along the way. RouteWise encourages safe driving with trip feedback and safe route suggestions, so you can plan a safer trip by assessing your options prior to departure.
