Telematics insurance usually works by setting up in the vehicle a device, termed usually as a Black Box, which records different metrics of the latter, such as speed, distance, and the type of road one travels.
This device also monitors the braking pattern and driving style, which is utilized by insurance companies to compute the premium accordingly.

Tesla launched telematic insurance in three additional US states. Real-time driver data insurance has been made available in Colorado, Oregon, and Virginia by the expanding insurance section of Tesla.
There are now seven states where auto insurance is offered. Tesla Insurance is also offered in California, but due to state rules, it does not provide real-time driver safety data.
Despite having little direct impact on the present insurance market as a whole, a report by Moody’s Investor Services claims that Tesla and other automakers are becoming strong competitors to established auto insurers.
There is a tonne of room for technology companies to undercut traditional insurers with their low-cost offerings, as demonstrated by Tesla’s own insurance business, which offers auto coverage by analysing real-time driving data to determine accident risk.
In fact, evidence indicates that Tesla may presently offer insurance to traditional insurers at a 20–40% discount. Additionally, by urging the insurance sector to improve its own data-led underwriting, the insurtech has already demonstrated its potential as a significant competitor in the market.
Due to its focus on covering only its own vehicles, Tesla doesn’t directly threaten conventional insurers. Nevertheless, as Tesla’s market share increases, the competition the technology car manufacturer poses will undoubtedly worsen.
Additionally, experts predict that this will pick up speed if additional automakers introduce their own insurance products.
New auto insurance product powered by telematics was launched by Aviva Canada. Safe drivers will receive significant insurance discounts thanks to the new Aviva Journey, an app-based telematics solution.
Customers who sign up for the app can immediately be eligible for a 10% discount on their current auto insurance, and it can be downloaded on smartphones.
By using the Aviva Journey app, their IMS One App mobile telematics technology enables Aviva Canada to gather data insights and provide meaningful contact with its policyholders.
To properly understand how its clients drive and to connect safe driving to financial benefits, the app gathers incredibly detailed data.
Prior to the launch, there was a strong sense of teamwork between Aviva and IMS. As a result, we have created a very amazing and captivating mobile app-based product that has been highly appreciated by both our broker partners and customers.
The insurance company was able to respond to suggestions made by brokers and early adopters. In order to create “an outstanding customer experience,” Aviva and IMS have made changes to the app.
They are happy to be at the forefront of the drive towards personalised premiums based on behavioural data reaching a tipping point for widespread acceptance in North America and beyond.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in changing demands of insurers from traditional actuarial and underwriting models to pay-as-you-drive (PAYD) models.
In addition, increased acceptance of digital tools in the policy binding & claims process among consumers, combined with a need for insurers to design premium policies more precisely are major factors notably contributing towards the market growth.
The insurance telematics market consists of several major players. In terms of market share, almost none of the market players currently have significant dominance in the market.
The major players with the prominent share in the market are focusing on expanding their customer base across foreign countries to stay on the top.
