JustRide’s Yabber mobile app can review and rate your driving skills

By : |October 4, 2016 0

JustRide, an aggregator in the self-drive car rental industry, announced its ambitious plans of altering the way cars are driven in India with its cutting-edge ‘Smart Vehicle technology’ (SVT).

JustRide’s latest innovation- Yabber is built to assess and reward individuals based on their driving skills. It’s a comprehensive device that is based on the principles of ‘Connected Cars’, where a connected car platform enables vehicles to communicate with external devices.

After downloading Yabber on smartphone and installing the device in the car’s on-board diagnostics (OBD) port which relays essential performance parameters, the system will rate customers on a scale of 1 to 5. So, a good driver may get a discount on the rentals for subsequent trips while a poor or bad driver may even be rejected.

The technology allows car owners in locating their cars, understand its performance, secure their vehicles, drive it safe and economically, pre-schedule maintenance with service stations, real-time notifications of over speeding, and excessive breaking. The app can also review and rate trips, keep track of the cumulative score and also give tips to improve driving skills. In short, your car will communicate and lets you know the best way to drive it.

This app will also help you connect with fellow drivers in the city and compare scores, and these scorecards and achievements can be shared on social media.

Ashwarya Pratap Singh, CEO, JustRide, said “With the advancement in technology, the sophisticated components and software will allow vehicles to seamlessly communicate with various external devices and servers via the internet which we believe is going to be the future in India. We are quite hopeful that we are on the right growth path considering the car rental market is poised to grow and touch INR 800 billion by 2019.”

Mentored by Y Combinator and Google, JustRide has ambitious plans for its SVT system. The system can be easily implemented in alternative modes of transport over water and air and the company is currently analyzing future prospects for the same.

JustRide has gained 40,000 customers and generated over 1 lakh transactions, since April this year.
