Tech Brief: May 2024

Data sharing services

DriveQuant has designed a range of services to transfer the driving data collected by our telematics solution to your platform.

These data are used to analyse driver behaviour, manage claims and diagnose the performance of your mobile application that uses the DriveKit SDK. 

We offer four data integration services that automatically push key data to your platform:

1. The push trip data service. It includes raw data recorded by the phone's sensors, driving behaviour indicators and multiple trip statistics.

2. The push deleted trip service. It declares that a trip has been deleted on the DriveQuant platform, and notifies you to replicate this action if the trip was also saved on your platform.

3. The push crash data service. This service publishes accident data detected by the DriveKit SDK and used for assistance or claims management.

4. The push diagnosis data service. This is data related to the configuration and status of the smartphone on which a mobile application integrating the DriveKit SDK is installed.

Monitoring the state of your telematics application

To ensure that all your users' trips are correctly recorded and analysed, we've introduced an advanced feature for monitoring and sharing the configuration of a mobile app that integrates our SDK.

The DriveKit SDK continuously measures the configurations of the app and the smartphone on which it is installed: app permissions, sensor status and all user-caused events.

We offer a new service for publishing on your platform all the diagnostic data collected by the SDK installed in each of your users' mobile applications.

These data are very useful to :

  • automatically identify users with configuration problems.
  • provide technical assistance to help users configure their smartphone.
  • detect trip recording problems caused by user logout, app uninstall, or phone shutdown.

Declaration of information required for Health applications on Android

From the end of May, Google Play users must complete the Health app declaration form on the app's content page.

Although the DriveKit SDK does not offer health-related functionality, it uses the Activity Recognition API to detect vehicle trips. This API is associated with health data and requires that you fill the Health app declaration form.

The procedure is quick and easy. Simply select “Others” and enter the text below in the “Health Applications” section of the Android console: 

  • My application does not offer any health functions.
  • We use the Activity Recognition API to detect activity in order to detect trips.
  • When a trip is detected, our app analyses the driver's behaviour and gives advice on how to reduce road risks.

How do I disable the power saver on a Vivo smartphone?

Most Android smartphones have a battery saver that limits the power consumption of installed applications.

For Vivo smartphones running Android 14 and with the FunTouch interface, the power saver has received a few minor updates. To help your users to disable the power saver, we've updated our guides.
