Seattle, WA, and Oakland, CA (PRWEB) February 20, 2015
ATG Risk Solutions (ATG), creators of the FAIRTM Score a safe driving index, and the first telematics data clearinghouse to enable usage-based insurance (UBI) programs for auto insurance carriers, and Vehicle Data Science Corp. (VDS), specialists in advanced vehicle safety systems and analysis, jointly announced today they have been awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). The grant funds will be used by the two firms to validate driving scoring models and create a scoring system that will permit the use of data on vehicle performance and the driven environment to predict driving risk and improve driving safety performance.
According to VDS Co-founder and CEO Chris Wilson, The SBIR will test the theory that scoring driving trips must be done by comparing properties of vehicle movement, or kinematics, to derive true predictive value. While knowing when a driver exceeds the posted speed for a segment of roadway is helpful, academic research shows a strong likelihood that risk may be better assessed and predicted based on how the driver is performing in relation to other drivers on that same segment of road at the same time.
The analysis is derived from VDSs Kinematic Map, or K-MapTM, which uses data from myriad telematics sources. K-Map matches existing road data with the known vehicle location, time and speed, allowing driving performance to be compared to a common standard. The result of this match, Wilson says, will give a clearer picture of how safe or risky the driver is actually driving the vehicle.
The background data for the study will come from ATGs telematics data clearinghouse. The Clearinghouse allows auto insurers to access and verify vehicle information and driving analytics to enhance their underwriting and ratings processes. ATGs databank aggregates and normalizes driving data from a variety of sources, including a large number of telematics service providers who collect the data on behalf of their fleet management customers. ATGs FAIR (Forward-Looking Assessment of Indexed Risk) Score, relying on the billions of miles of driving data in the ATG Clearinghouse, establishes a reliable standard for evaluating driving performance that benefits privacy-conscious consumers, auto manufacturers, fleet operators and insurers alike.
With the worlds largest commercial vehicle telematics database, the ATG Clearinghouse serves as a secure and trusted repository of detailed data on how, where and when vehicles are being driven more than 25 billion miles of real-world driving experience, and growing, notes ATG Risk Solutions President Chris Carver. Were providing the historical and contextual data to layer onto the K-Map being developed by VDS, to provide insight into actual driving performance. We believe this combination will demonstrate to the USDOT that, indeed, a transparent, predictive driver scoring system can be developed, leading to new possibilities for roadway usage and our transportation infrastructure.
VDSs K-Map uses vehicle traces to create a high-accuracy, information-rich map of historical driving patterns. Its innovative design depicts how roads are actually driven, which enables detection of unsafe maneuvers, scoring of drivers against their peers, and reliably setting an autonomous vehicle’s path and speed.
Following an introduction by Allen Greenberg of the US Department of Transportations Federal Highway Administration, Wilson and Carver will be discussing the SBIRs preliminary findings in a presentation at the upcoming Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) meeting March 11th in Dallas, TX. The presentation will focus on using real-time driving data to improve rating accuracy and segmentation for commercial lines auto insurance policies.
An early-stage technology company focused on data acquisition, storage, management and analytics, Seattle-based ATG Risk Solutions was founded in March 2014 to enable and propel the use of commercial vehicle telematics data by property and casualty insurers for improved risk assessment, leading to both improved profit and policyholder benefits from safe driving.

GREECE (PRWEB) January 29, 2015
Football players write their history and in subsequent the clubs on the field. They formulate not only the competitive success story but most importantly they imprint their personal ethical code by their behavior during the action. That ethical code leaves the mark on the fans impression. When an Empire folds, like Alexanders or Romans or the recent British and the present day traces of decay from the mighty United States of America, people search to find out the causes.
PANATHINAIKOS became a football victim of the corruptive organizational authority of the Greek football. It has been sidelined its presence in winning titles for 18 years. Just as the politics in the country proved corruptive bankrupting the nation so did the football. While reformation is under way fro the Greek society, reformation is absent from its football scene.
There is a dark side of this biographical history of Panathinaikos. This mighty football club fell victim to the corruptive political machinations since 1996. Politicians drove the country to bankruptcy so they did a number of football clubs including Panathinaikos in favor of a present day permanent football champion in Greece. But Panathinaikos stamp in the countrys athletic history is glorious.
The Greatest Greek Athletic Club (published by Xlibris UK) by George Kusunelos depicts the heroics of football players in the world of athleticism the way others can succeed on other different fields. It is also a haven where characters are nourished ethically. One can metamorphosize a school into a football campus and will see no glaring difference to the curriculum taught in relation on the field of competition or in ones social behavior. This book is 25 years in the making. Its research brings facts and certified informational material suitable not only for enjoyment but also a biographical light from an independent, unprejudiced and open-minded author for the benefit to Football Biographical Historiography. This book also highlights the glory of a football club, within the standards of the Greek football world, that has produced such a plead of players personalities who have left a mark on the society. Readers will also have a complete and detailed history of Panathinaikos which enables them to go back in referring to its pages any time they need a concrete and specific piece of information.
Skillfully written, highly imaginative and extremely interesting, The Greatest Greek Athletic Club is for all football aficionados who want to learn the history of football and how this game became the most influential and famous sport of all time.
