I had the honor of presenting with a friend and former colleague at the Insurance Telematics USA 2011 conference in Chicago. A large focus of the conference pertained to using event data recorder (EDR) and onboard diagnostic port (OBD II) devices to gather driving-habit data to more accurately underwrite risk.
