Drive Change Today – FIA Smart Driving Challenge (22 November – 12 December) is a dedicated challenge for COP28 developed by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) in partnership with AI data analytics company Greater Than.
Drivers can compete from anywhere in the world, regardless of where they live or the kind of car they drive. Like the annual FIA SDC, Drive Change Today will score drivers based on their focus, energy consumption, and adaptability to road conditions. That score will be used to rank them against their fellow competitors.
Drive Change Today is a truly global challenge but the FIA and Greater Than also want to make sure that delegates can understand its impact when they attend COP28 in the United Arab Emirates. In addition to everyday drivers from around the world and COP28 attendees, 10,000 cars from fleets in the UAE have been invited to participate in Drive Change Today during the conference period, with the support of FIA Member the Emirates Motorsports Organization (EMSO). The FIA Smart Driving Challenge program will also be displayed at the FIA’s stand in the COP28 Blue Zone.
Start driving smart today:
The FIA SDC app incorporates Greater Than’s revolutionary pattern AI technology to analyze and score users’ driving. The app also offers drivers tips on how they can reduce their CO2 emissions or energy consumption, and improve their focus and adaptability on the roads.
Drivers can get involved by downloading the app and connecting it to their car via Bluetooth. Once a user starts driving, the app will monitor their behavior, and give feedback based on their level of focus, energy consumption, and how well they anticipate and handle situations.
The FIA Smart Driving Challenge acts as a personal improvement tool – motivating individuals to change their own behavior and manage their impact on the roads and the environment. Those using the app see an average emissions reduction of 12%. Getting everyone engaged will be essential if we want to achieve our sustainability targets.
At the same time, telematics technologies embedded in the FIA Smart Driving Challenge can also be used to facilitate wider sustainability reporting, enabling companies and organizations to ensure they meet key sustainability standards throughout their operations.
