Launch of Proof-of-Idea Undertaking in Hawaii to Present Predictive Companies
to Cut back Auto Accidents
Tokio Marine Holdings, Inc. (President and Group CEO, Satoru Komiya, hereinafter known as “TMHD”), Tokio Marine & Nichido Hearth Insurance coverage Co., Ltd. (President, Shinichi Hirose, hereinafter known as “TMNF”) and Tokio Marine dR Co., Ltd. (President, Taizo Shimakura, hereinafter known as “Tokio dR”) intention to offer “accident predictive companies” by way of early detection of potential causes of auto accidents based mostly on the driving knowledge collected and utilizing the information to offer alerts to clients.
To understand this idea we have now began a Proof-of-Idea (PoC) challenge in Hawaii. We’re at all times working to ship higher safety and security to drivers by growing and offering new services, leveraging huge knowledge obtained from drive recorders supplied to auto insurance coverage policyholders, in addition to knowledge evaluation strategies reminiscent of machine studying.
In April 2017, TMNF launched its personal telematics service known as “Drive Agent Private (DAP)”, a service that makes use of a drive recorder with an inbuilt communications perform to particular person clients, which was a primary for the insurance coverage business in Japan. In April 2021, additional progress was made by launching the business’s first “twin digital camera built-in drive recorder with an inbuilt communications perform” geared up with a front-facing and an in-vehicle digital camera, which has been adopted by many purchasers since its launch.
In July 2021, Tokio Marine Group’s core knowledge firm “Tokio dR” was established to develop data-driven merchandise and threat options that make the most of knowledge and cutting-edge IoT gadgets to visualise and detect dangers at an early stage.
TMHD goals to reinforce its services associated to secure driving and there was a variety of analysis into this at its Digital Lab in Silicon Valley which has been using the information collected by drive recorders. In an effort to additional speed up this
challenge it was determined to ascertain a joint PoC challenge with a number of group corporations and an exterior companion.

First Insurance coverage Firm of Hawaii (FICOH), a Tokio Marine group firm in Hawaii, TMNF, and DENSO Worldwide America, Inc., a subsidiary of DENSO Company, have kicked off a joint PoC for the aim of analysis on find out how to present efficient companies deploying the beta model (prototype) of “Accident Predictive Algorithms (*)” developed at Tokio Marine’s Digital Lab in Silicon Valley.
Particularly, by monitoring driving conduct amongst volunteers who take part within the PoC, we are going to confirm the accuracy of the “Accident Predictive Algorithms” in addition to look into the optimum frequency of which to inform the driving force of the findings in Oahu, Hawaii. Oahu was chosen as a result of its is named a compact metropolis (city design and residence mixed in excessive density), the place all kinds of driving knowledge is on the market inside a single journey.
(*) Accident Predictive Algorithm
With 44 million hours of information (GPS, acceleration, video footage, and many others.) collected from the drive recorders utilized by the auto insurance coverage policyholders, the algorithm can predict the chance of an accident by detecting doubtlessly harmful driving conduct or conditions. The algorithm (presently patent-pending) was developed by TMNF and Tokio dR in collaboration with the Digital Lab in Silicon Valley.
