DOWN THE ROAD
As any owner of a late-model vehicle knows, computer
technology is exerting an ever-increasing influence on the
auto industry. In addition, information technology is also
having an effect on the way that automobile insurers analyze
data and service their customers. To begin with, increased
computer power enables insurance companies to assess data
about drivers based on their garaging address, which enables
them to better predict the potential loss cost for a particular
vehicle. In the future, insurance companies hope to employ
data generated from vehicles’ onboard computers that will
help them better streamline their rating systems. From
drivers’ standpoints, both passive and active systems in
vehicles and roads are likely to make automobile travel safer,
thereby reducing insurance costs.
