Vehicle and engine speed, acceleration, brake, battery, and tire conditions, in addition to other data such as weather and traffic congestion, are recovered daily from Zoomcars.

In addition, with the support of HERE tech Zoomcar can create more efficient, real-time interventions in the driving habits of their connected car users. “It's really very important that we're able to reach the customers at the right place when we know for certain that poor driving is happening," offered Moran.
