I just went on a 10 hour car trip and the traffic wasnt too bad so i
spent a lot of time balancing my speed and position relative to other
cars with my left thumb -- clicking the increment button on the
cruise control. I was thinking that it was pretty recordable data and
that it could be combined
the rest of my driving data to tell what
kind of a driver I am, and that I would be interested to know how my
data compared against other people I know and whether I could be
alerted that mr. X statistically would do y in a similar situation, or
when a choice came up, what percentage of my friends who have
been in jail would make x choice as opposed to what percentage of
my friends who make over 100,000 dollars a year would make y
choice and stuff like that.
Didn't that social network Diaspora offer to give you control over
your data? I wonder if a Diaspora app could be to allow people to
sell or share their driving data in some way.
Progressive Insurance Snapshot
The much advertised "Snapshot" device touted by Progressive Insurance as a tool which tracks your driving habits to ultimately reduce your insurance rates does actually seem very close to this idea, as [MB] and [FT] have indicated. [jurist, Sep 01 2013]
