Mentor is a safe driving programme by eDriving that aims to actively encourage safer driving behaviours.
It uses smartphone sensors to collect and analyse driver behaviours most predictive of risk, including acceleration, braking, cornering, speeding, and phone use. The programme eliminates the need for additional hardware through its suite of bespoke features, such as a safe driving score that predicts the likelihood of future collision involvement, in-app training, gamification, and driver event report functionality.
In 2020, eDriving supplemented the programme by enabling organisations with existing telematics solutions to combine it with Mentor into one management system.
A six-month pilot test of Mentor in 2019 found that it could contribute to a 30% drop in collisions per million miles driven. When the programme was rolled out to 12,000 drivers by Ecolab, Mentor helped to highlight those who were most at risk with a crash so that the organisation could intervene.
eDriving won the 2020 Fleet Safety Innovation Award at the UK Fleet Champions Awards.
