  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE FIGURES
  • FIG. 1 illustrates a system for determination of vehicle accident information, in accordance with an embodiment.
  • FIG. 2 further illustrates a system for determination of vehicle accident information, in accordance with an embodiment.
  • FIG. 3 is a flowchart of a method for determination of vehicle accident information, in accordance with an embodiment.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • As described above, information about a vehicle, or its driver, has a bearing on factors such as liability insurance, and accident investigation. For example, in the event of an accident it may be of interest to an investigator or an insurance claims adjuster to determine the status or operation of a vehicle at the time of the accident. An investigator or adjuster may also be interested in the estimated cost to repair the vehicle, or the likelihood or severity of personal injury to occupants of the vehicle.
  • To address this, described herein is a system and method for determination of vehicle accident information. In accordance with an embodiment, a vehicle can be equipped with a portable device equipped with a data collection and assessment environment, including one or more data collection devices used to capture data and information or otherwise measure characteristics of the vehicle, and communicate that information to an accident review framework or system. In the event of an accident, the information can be used, for example, by an investigator or an insurance claims adjuster, to review the status or operation of a vehicle at the time of the accident, or to automatically summon emergency services, such as ambulance or police, taking into account the nature or severity of the accident.
  • FIG. 1 illustrates a system for determination of vehicle accident information, in accordance with an embodiment.
  • As shown in FIG. 1, in accordance with an embodiment, a driver 100 of a vehicle 101 can use an accident information collection/assessment system 103, which can be provided all or in part as a portable device (e.g., a smartphone, a tablet computer, computer, or other portable device), and which is equipped with a data collection and assessment environment 104.
  • In accordance with an embodiment, the assessment system can itself include one or more data collection devices 106 (e.g., speedometers, accelerometers, GPS, gyroscopes, compass, or other measurement devices) that can be used to capture data and information, such as speed and heading, or otherwise measure vehicle actions, together with a data collection and assessment logic 108. A pattern recognition module 118 is configured with one or more defined operating patterns, each of which operating patterns reflects either a known change in vehicle status, or a known vehicle operating or driving behavior. For example, a vehicle responds in a physically-measurable manner to driver-based driving actions, e.g., by the driver turning the vehicle sharply at a corner. An accelerometer can be similarly used to register the sudden deceleration or impact of a collision, and its direction. This enables the system to associate patterns with certain vehicle status or operations, or with historical records for a particular vehicle or for similar vehicles.
  • In accordance with an embodiment, an accident Information collection/assessment module 123 can be used to collect information about accidents, or compare current patterns of driving, patterns of previous collisions, or other information, with known patterns to assess a particular accident. For example, a collision pattern might take into account the mass of a vehicle together with its direction and speed, an abrupt stop (indicative of a collision), plus the make, year, and condition of the vehicle. As another example, a driving pattern might take into account speed, swerving, acceleration, tracking of lane, etc of the vehicle. In accordance with various embodiments, other types of patterns can be considered. The resultant information can be remotely communicated to an external accident review framework or system 130, where the information can be used, for example, by an investigator or an insurance claims adjuster, to review the status or operation of a vehicle at the time of the accident.
  • In accordance with an embodiment, the information collected and/or generated by the accident review framework or system, can be used to assess the severity and type of accident, and/or to classify the accident in terms of severity and vehicle type, to be able to make an assessment of damage to the vehicle. This provides an insurer with improved management of their claims process, and also helps to reduce insurance fraud. Additional uses of the system include that emergency systems management in handling of accidents and injuries can also be improved. The method of assessing damage provides utility both in the direct impact analysis, and also in the historical compilation of similar patterns' costs, based on the range and average for a particular car, at this speed and with these readings of, e.g., gyroscope and accelerometer.
  • In accordance with an embodiment, the system can incorporate or utilize additional functionality as further described in U.S. Patent Application titled “SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR USE OF PATTERN RECOGNITION IN ASSESSING OR MONITORING VEHICLE STATUS OR OPERATOR DRIVING BEHAVIOR”; application Ser. No. 13/679,722, filed Nov. 16, 2012, herein incorporated by reference.
  • FIG. 2 further illustrates a system for determination of vehicle accident information, in accordance with an embodiment. As shown in FIG. 2, during use, the data collection and assessment environment, including one or more data collection devices, is used to capture data and information or otherwise measure characteristics of the vehicle, and provide those to an external accident review framework or system. In accordance with an embodiment, the external accident review framework or system can be used to collect or determine accident history and statistical data 140 (for example, vehicle make and model, device installation location, average cost of claim, images of damage, and/or a list of damaged components); perform an analysis of historical and statistical data 150 (for example, analysis of past claims, approximate g-force, estimated cost, and/or impact severity); and consolidate results or relation to live statistics 160 (for example, consolidation of reported accident data, reporting of g-force, averaging of claims history and estimated costs, estimation of trauma severity). The consolidated results or relation to live statistics can be provided to an investigator or an insurance claims adjuster, to assist in determining the status or operation of the vehicle at the time of the accident, and/or review any insurance claim by the Accident Review Framework 130.
  • FIG. 3 is a flowchart of a method for determination of vehicle accident information, in accordance with an embodiment. As shown in FIG. 3, at step 182, a vehicle is provided with a data collection and assessment environment and one or more data collection devices. At step 184, in the event of an accident, the data collection and assessment environment remotely communicates vehicle data and information to an external accident review framework or system. At step 185, accident history and statistical data is determined. At step 186, historical and statistical data is analyzed. At step 188, the system consolidates results, relation to live statistics, for use by an investigator or an insurance claims adjuster, to determine the status or operation of the vehicle at the time of the accident, and/or review any insurance claim.
  • The present invention may be conveniently implemented using one or more conventional general purpose or specialized digital computers or microprocessors programmed according to the teachings of the present disclosure, or a portable device (e.g., a smartphone, tablet computer, computer or other device), equipped with a data collection and assessment environment, including one or more data collection devices (e.g., accelerometers, GPS) or where the portable device are connected to the data collection devices that are remote to the portable device, that are connected via wired or wireless means.
