Renault innovations to better support drivers.

preventing accidents, our mission

Analysis of physical traffic accidents shows that in just over 90% of cases*, one of the causes may be a human factor: excessive or inappropriate speed; driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs or medication; loss of concentration whilst driving.


We are developing a strategy of prevention and action to provide solutions and make travelling safer.

3 innovations to assist drivers

Our highly pragmatic approach is to put in place a kind of “guardian angel” to help drivers to drive more safely. There are three levels of action:

detect and inform
detect and inform
The Safety Score analyses driving data to encourage safer driving.
discover the safety score
The Safety Coach informs the driver about potential risks on the journey in real time.
find out about the safety coach
The Safe Guardian can slow the vehicle down and keep it safe in case of a risk.

personalised tips

The Safety Score analyses driving behaviour based on
data from the vehicle’s sensors. Designed in partnership
with French driving schools, it will soon give relevant
advice to each driver based on four criteria:


  • Safe speed
  • Safe trajectory
  • Safe distance
  • Safe vigilance

customised driving advice

The Safety Coach offers advice that takes into account the main risk indicators identified during driving. The idea is to encourage the driver to drive more safely.

risks visualised

By combining mapping and the navigation system, the driver will know in real time when they are approaching high-risk areas. This will make them drive more carefully.

The recommendations given to the driver will take into account the scores obtained from the safe speed, safe distance, safe trajectory and safe vigilance criteria.

For optimum efficiency, the advice issued by the Safety Coach will be highly practical.


For example:

  • to boost the Safe Speed criterion,
    use the speed limiter
  • to optimise the Safe Vigilance criterion,
    use the Lane Departure Warning and Lane Centering 

The Safety Coach will go so far as to reward drivers who “play the game” by encouraging them, for example, to sign up for connected insurance offers, or to get discounts on partner products.
