Abstract

A central claims adjuster control unit associated with an entity may oversee the assignment of claims cases to claims adjusters. The control unit may designate that a threshold number of cases may be assigned to certain claims adjusters. When new claims cases arrive, the control unit may monitor the workload of each of the claims adjusters and the threshold value assigned to any of the claims adjusters before assigning the case to one of the adjusters. If no adjuster is available, the control unit may store the case(s) in a memory until one of the adjusters becomes available. An additional feature of the control unit includes a user interface for modifying information about claims adjusters, including whether or not a threshold value is associated with them, the value of any associated threshold, and the reassignment of cases from one adjuster to another.

Abstract

A claim-based capitation model is proposed for handling vehicle repair insurance claims. Rather than determining a detailed estimate of the expected actual cost of repair, the estimate may be determined using a simpler model. For example, the insurance company and a repair facility may agree to following a predictive payment model in which the insurance company pays a fixed predicted capitated amount of money for each repair claim, regardless of the amount of repair work that will be needed. Alternatively, the insurance company may pre-pay a fixed capitated amount for a predicted number of future insurance claims.

Abstract

A computer-assisted method for providing re-quotations for insurance coverage may include receiving a list of insurance leads corresponding to individuals who received a previous quotation for insurance coverage but did not purchase the insurance coverage and identifying a difference between the previous quotation and a new quotation. This difference may include an increase in offered insurance coverage and/or a reduction in cost. A computing device may calculate a probability for each of the individuals on the list using a regression model based, at least in part, on the identified difference. In some cases, the regression model may be associated with individual states. In other cases, the regression model may correspond to a plurality of states. The regression model may output a probability that a resident of a particular state will purchase insurance in response to a re-quotation for insurance coverage, where individuals may then be ranked based on the probability.

Abstract

Methods, computer-readable media, software, and system may generally build and quantify mobility patterns based on user location data, both at an individual level and an aggregate level. The system may determine the origin and destination data for each trip taken by a user. The system may then define areas of mobility using a mobility graph built from the data. The graph may include nodes and edges. In some examples, the nodes are constructed from the origins and destinations of the trajectories using spatial clustering techniques. Further, the edges between nodes may be constructed based on the trips between them, such as two nodes are connected by an edge if there is at least one trip between them. The edges may be given different weights based on trip frequencies. The system may then determine a region of mobility using the generated mobility graph and data clustering techniques.

Abstract

Implementations include classifying vehicle trips as similar to previous trips or trips reversed based on location information of a vehicle received from a location device. Unique tile identifiers of the trip, each corresponding to a geographic area and the location information, may be determined and used to generate a fingerprint of the trip. The derived trip fingerprint of the trip information may be compared to stored fingerprints of one or more previously received trips to determine if the new trip is similar to one or more of the previous trips or trips reversed. In one instance, two trips that share a similar route but in opposite directions may be identified as a trip pair and stored in a trip database as the trip pair.

Abstract

A computer-assisted method for providing re-quotations for insurance coverage may include receiving a list of insurance leads corresponding to individuals who received a previous quotation for insurance coverage but did not purchase the insurance coverage and identifying a difference between the previous quotation and a new quotation. This difference may include an increase in offered insurance coverage and/or a reduction in cost. A computing device may calculate a probability for each of the individuals on the list using a regression model based, at least in part, on the identified difference. In some cases, the regression model may be associated with individual states. In other cases, the regression model may correspond to a plurality of states. The regression model may output a probability that a resident of a particular state will purchase insurance in response to a re-quotation for insurance coverage, where individuals may then be ranked based on the probability.

A notification of the adjustment may be output to the driver. Also, the adjustment may be stored with a time associated with the adjustment so that the appropriate deductible is used in case of an accident. Multiple adjustments to the deductible may be made during a single trip as the driving situation changes.

Abstract

A system and method are disclosed to promote good driving among users. A user-customizable good driving (GD) wish list may be created, populated, modified, and/or used to promote good driving. The GD wish list may be used in conjunction with a vehicle telematics unit (VTU) to monitor, process, detect, and/or record good driving events, and communicate and/or generate positive feedback for the user. In addition to positive feedback, good driving (GD) points may be accumulated based on driving behavior. The accumulated GD points may be used in conjunction with a product and/or service offering, such as by an insurance company. Furthermore, in some examples, the system encourages users to promote good driving behavior by pledging themselves to a challenging GD wish list that will earn them more GD points and the associated benefits.

Abstract

Methods, computer-readable media, software, and apparatuses may determine, for a geographic region and based on geolocation data, a plurality of sub-regions, where each sub-region of the plurality of sub-regions may include real properties with a shared profile. The system may associate, with each sub-region, a collection of coordinate pairs, where each coordinate pair comprises a latitude and a longitude, and the collection describes a boundary of a geometric shape corresponding to the sub-region. The system may associate, with the geographic region, geometric shapes corresponding to the plurality of sub-regions. The system may associate, with each geometric shape, a rating factor for the real properties located within the sub-region corresponding to the geometric shape. The system may store the geometric shapes and rating factors, and may generate, based on the rating factor and for the real properties located within the sub-region, an output, and provide the generated output.

Abstract

Aspects of the present disclosure are directed toward systems and methods for using vehicle telematics information to compensate individuals for increases in fuel prices above a guaranteed fuel price. The approaches described herein compensate the individuals based on the difference between a guaranteed fuel price and a comparison fuel price for a coverage period, the distance traveled during the coverage period, and the estimated fuel economy of the vehicle type. A baseline fuel price is determined and used to set a guaranteed price for a coverage period. During the coverage period, a telematics device collects telematics information associated with trips taken in a vehicle. That telematics information is then stored at a data store and used to compensate an individual associated with the vehicle when fuel prices rise during the coverage period to exceed the guaranteed fuel price.

Abstract

Methods, computer-readable media, software, and apparatuses provide a tool for use by drivers and/or coaches throughout the pre-license stage of obtaining a driver’s license. A pre-license program may control a computing device to collect drive data while a driver is driving a vehicle. This drive data may be used to detect a drive event. Then, the computing device may present coaching information associated with the detected drive event. The coaching information may provide a passenger, such as a coach or parent, with real-time advice for instructing the driver how to improve his/her driving skills. Moreover, the drive data collected may be used to prepare reports providing feedback to the drivers and coaches. Further, the pre-license program may determine an expected track for a driver to follow to prepare for a driver’s license test and may indicate whether the driver is on or off the track.

Abstract

A driving analysis server may be configured to receive vehicle operation data from mobile devices respectively disposed within the vehicles, and may use the data to group the vehicles into multiple groups. A driving pattern for each vehicle may be established and compared against a group driving pattern of its corresponding group to identify outliers. A driver score the outliers may be adjusted positively or negatively based on whether the outlier behaved in a manner more or less safe than its group. Further, unsafe driving events performed by the outlier that were the result of another vehicle's unsafe driving event may be ignored or positively accounted for in determining or adjusting the outlier's driver score.

Abstract

A system including a computing device may receive base map information, including attribute information associated with a plurality of road segments, and trip request information. Based on this information, a route for the user to travel may be determined. The system might further calculate a risk score for each road segment forming the route, and generate a risk map based on the risk score and the route. The risk map may then be displayed to a user. The risk map may include markers or other objects depicting potential risks along the route the driver may face. Also, the risk map may be updated based on information collected from a sensor coupled to the vehicle or located at the road segment to reflect actual, real-time risk scores calculated using an equation for providing a risk score for a particular driver driving a particular vehicle on a particular road segment.
