Improvements to the driveScore in your autoSense app
You love to sit safely and responsibly behind the wheel and master the roads? So do we! And we want to make sure you get the most out of every drive. That's why we're bringing driveScore improvements to the autoSense app in October.
New texts and tips for an even better driving experience
Our goal is to take your driving skills to the next level. That's why we've been working diligently on new texts and tips that will help you optimize your driveScore. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced driver, we have something for everyone.
With autoSense driveScore, your driving style is put to the acid test.
In this feature you will find information on:
- Acceleration behaviour
- Braking behaviour
- Behaviour in curves
- Overall driving style
- Anonymised comparison with the autoSense community
- Consideration of the driving style over a longer period of time
In your personal overview in the app, your total score is displayed, which is based on all past rides and your driving behaviour. The corresponding smiley shows you how your driving skills are currently doing.
If the smiley in your app ever makes an unhappy face, it could be because you are accelerating quickly/suddenly while driving, braking hard or entering curves sharply.
And this is how driveScore works
driveScore uses sensor data from the autoSense adapter installed in your vehicle to analyse your individual journeys. This sensor data includes mileage, acceleration and speed.
The driving performance for each trip is mapped to a score on a scale of 0-100. The most important metrics for calculating the trip score are acceleration behaviour, braking behaviour and cornering behaviour.
How are the values calculated?
Events are registered based on threshold values of the individual metrics (acceleration, braking, curve behavior). An event can be, for example, accelerating too fast, an abrupt brake or a curve driven too fast. That means, as soon as one of your maneuvers is above the defined threshold, an event is generated.
Depending on how many events per drive are registered by the autoSense adapter, your driveScore changes positively or negatively.
If you have no event in 100km, then you have reached the score of 100. But if you have five events, for example abrupt braking, too strong acceleration or too fast cornering, then you only have a driveScore of 50. If you have even more events, your score will sink lower and lower. You can increase it again by adjusting your driving style and concentrating on more pleasant driving.
You will have a higher score if you drive longer distances, for example on highways. There you have less influences and can drive more constantly. However, if you only need your car for shorter distances or in the city, you may generate more events because you have to brake more jerkily, accelerate faster or take more turns.
You are dissatisfied with your driveScore and want to improve it?
Always make sure to increase your speed slowly and evenly. Avoid unnecessary acceleration and braking.
Always leave enough distance between you and the vehicle in front so that you do not have to slam on the brakes if the traffic comes to a standstill.
Slow down gradually when entering a bend, maintain a steady, safe speed during the bend and then accelerate gently as you exit the bend.

Sustainability is very important to me. With the driveScore, I know at a glance whether I am driving in an environmentally friendly way or whether I need to adjust my driving style. In addition, I not only protect the environment but also my vehicle, which pays off in the long term in terms of maintenance costs and also saves petrol.
