Device Data Statement
Detailed list of data the telematics device collects
The device you plug into your vehicle collects information that is sent back to Allstate over a secure wireless connection. The device also collects a few additional items and we want to make you aware of everything we collect from the device.
- Timestamp in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) at trip start and trip end
- Time zone at trip start used to convert trips to local time
- VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
- Indicator suggesting that hyper-miling took place
- Average speed while the vehicle is in motion (not including 0 mph)
- Seconds driven in speed bands (each band is 10 mph up to 120 mph)
- Miles driven in each time range (each time range is 1 hour totaling 24 ranges)*
- Constant speed mile driven in speed bands (each band is 10 mph up to 120 mph)
- Varying speed miles driven in speed bands (each band is 10 mph up to 120 mph)
- Seconds driven during deceleration in 1 mph/s bands up to 10 mph/s
- Seconds driven during acceleration in 1 mph/s bands up to 10 mph/s
- Count of occurrences braking more than 10 seconds in 6 bands over 6 mph/s
- Count of occurrences accelerating more than 10 seconds in 6 bands over 6 mph/s
- Accelerometer orientation flag – indicating whether the device oriented with vehicle
- Miles driven with small speed variation in 13 individual 5 mph bands
- Miles driven with larger speed variation in 13 individual 5 mph bands
- Count of successive acceleration and deceleration
- Count of excessive speed changes
This information is sent once per trip (a trip is measured as engine on and engine off).
Connect: A timestamp indicating when the device is installed in the vehicle. This is sent once per enrollment or if the device is un-installed and re-installed.
Disconnect: A timestamp indicating when the device is un-installed from vehicle. This is generally sent once per enrollment but also sent again anytime the device is un-installed and re-installed.
GPS trail: Includes GPS time, GPS position, GPS speed and GPS accuracy.
Heart Beat: A report indicating device is installed in the vehicle and working. This is sent once per day for the first week, then once per week if regular trips are generated.
Braking Event*: Hard Braking Events are defined as slowing down between 8 mph and 10 mph over a 1 second time interval. Extreme Braking Events are defined as slowing down 10 or more miles per hour over a 1 second time interval. Each braking event is sent once per event.
High Speed Event*: Vehicle speed exceeds 80 mph. Aggregate total miles spent above 80mph. Each instance where the 80 mph threshold is met is sent as one event.
Acceleration Event: Increases in vehicle speed greater than 8 mph per second. Duration is 10 seconds before and up to 30 seconds after. Each acceleration event is sent once per event.
Accelerometer Event: Vehicle exceeds the “At” trigger which is a composite x-, y- and z -vector. This is sent once per event as a separate report.
Battery Level: Voltage of vehicle battery when the battery hits a threshold indicating it may be low. This is sent once per event, sent as a separate report.
Device Data Trouble Codes: Various codes describing the health of the device and the communication with the vehicle. This is sent once per event, sent as a separate report.
Vehicle Data Trouble Codes: If the malfunction indicator lamp indicator turns on in the vehicle, this report will capture the associated check engine error code. This is sent once per event, sent as a separate report.
