NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 09/23/16 -- According to the Association for Psychological Science, when it comes to driving most people think their skills are above average. Other studies have found nearly two thirds of drivers rate themselves as excellent or very good.
For those excellent or very good drivers, Progressive Insurance offers a voluntary discount program called Snapshot that measures drivers habits to help them save money on their car insurance. This offering allows Progressive to personalize insurance rates based on individual driving habits. People who drive less, in safer ways and during safer times of day are most likely to get a discount:
- Safe drivers are defensive, and don't follow closely so they don't have to slam on the brakes.
- Low-mileage drivers live close to work, take public transportation, have an extra car they don't drive every day. Those that drive less than 50 miles a day are more likely to save with Snapshot. However, even high-mileage drivers can earn a discount if they avoid tailgating and sudden stops.
- Driving during safer times of day means avoiding driving between midnight and 4:00 a.m. or during the busiest times of day.
After signing up for Snapshot, users will receive a device that easily plugs into the car. It measures how fast, how far and when people drive, while also measuring rates of acceleration and hard braking. In addition to saving drivers money on their insurance, Snapshot is also a great way for customers to make changes to their driving habits, which can lead to bigger discounts.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
