About Zendrive

Our transportation system is evolving. Car ownership in urban centers is peaking and consumers are increasingly choosing on-demand and shared ride services over driving themselves. At the same time, commercial and on-demand fleets are becoming increasingly reliant on mobile technology, and autonomous cars are making the move from science fiction to reality. As miles driven shift away from personal vehicles to commercial or shared fleets, a new framework is required for addressing safety. Zendrive is leading the evolution of safety in an era of transportation innovation and mobile ubiquity. We are dedicated to making roads safer through data and analytics. Through our product suite, we leverage mobile sensor data to provide actionable insights that improve safety for passengers and drivers worldwide. Launched in 2013 and based in San Francisco, Zendrive has analyzed billions of driving miles and trillions of data points.
