Getaround pilots dash cam technology from Driver Technologies

Automotive technology company Driver Technologies and carsharing marketplace Getaround announced a pilot program that will offer drivers of shared vehicles in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle free access to dash cam technology and safety features.

“This agreement with Getaround is our first official collaboration with the rental and carsharing market, allowing us to provide safety solutions and peace of mind for this growing population of drivers. While the benefits of dash cams are clear to both drivers and businesses, the feature is seldom offered to renters. The market lacked a solution that provided the technology while protecting the customer’s data and respecting their privacy. We plan to bridge that gap.” – Rashid Galadanci, CEO and co-founder of Driver Technologies.

Through the pilot program, which will last for six months, Getaround users who sign up for a Driver account will automatically receive complimentary access to Driver’s premium app features for 3-months, which is normally $4.99/month, and includes dash cam video synced to the cloud, safety alerts and more.

“Getaround is very pleased to launch a pilot program with Driver Technologies. The safety of our customers is of paramount importance to Getaround and we are always evaluating new, innovative solutions to optimize the carsharing experience. Implementing dashcam technology from Driver will provide additional peace of mind to our guests and empower them to document their trips while still maintaining the highest levels of privacy.” – Ruth Yankoupe, VP of Customer Experience at Getaround.
