    What is a Safer Route about?

    With the safer routes at their fingertips, users are empowered to make informed decisions about their travel plans. Here's how it benefits the user:

    Scout Maps calculates the safest route to the destination and avoids potentially hazardous routes. For each route we are calculating a route safety score, based on the information available in our backend. At the core we have trained our AI model with information on past incidents on the roads. Identifying streets and highway segments that have a higher risk for an accident. Based on this model we are adding factors for maneuvers that are statistically more dangerous than others (e.g. unguarded left turns or complex intersections).

    Knowing all this, when calculating the route for you, we are considering alternatives that provide a better safety score. To let you have a choice and drive even more safely.

    What are Safety Alerts?

    Scout Maps promptly displays crucial safety alerts directly on your screen, ensuring you're aware of any potential hazards on your path. For alerts that demand immediate attention, such as sudden road closures or hazard ahead, Scout Maps accompanies the on-screen warning with an audio notification. This dual-alert approach guarantees that you remain well-informed, helping you to make safer driving decisions in real time.

    This personalized tool is designed to provide you with real-time insights into your driving behaviors.

Each trip you take is evaluated based on these risk factors, in correlation with the miles driven, to calculate your Safety Score.

    Your score starts at an ideal 100, which is then adjusted based on the number and severity of detected events during your drive. This final score offers a clear, concise reflection of your driving habits on each trip.
