AiCare was incubated in 2020 at the Antler Program and later joined the BIMA Lab Insurtech accelerator run by the Insurance Regulatory Authority of Kenya (IRA).

AiCare has developed an in-house technology that uses automobile driving data and driving behavior data to calculate the driver’s accident risk and quantify a risk score for insurance products led by the company’s founders who have specialized AI and machine learning.

 Insurance companies may use the score provided by AiCare — instead of developing and investing in the technology from scratch — to offer their telematics insurance products to their customers.

The company’s owners, who have specialized in AI and machine learning, have created an in-house technology that uses vehicle driving data and driving behavior data to measure the driver’s crash probability and quantify a risk ranking for insurance policies. 

Instead of designing and investing in the technology from the ground up, insurance carriers will use AiCare’s score to sell their telematics insurance plans to their clients.

Their custom-built machine-learning algorithm gives immediate access to powerful driving scoring tools that promote safer driving behavior and help generate reliable underwriting and risk-based pricing decisions.

Their Software-As-A-Service business model lowers the cost of adopting telematics, allowing companies to roll out telematics-based products without a large initial capital outlay.

They also factor in the local road infrastructure and the unique driving patterns in Kenya to create a truly localized risk profile relevant to the region.

Their technology has a myriad of applications in various mobility segments, including auto insurance, asset finance, fleet management, car manufacturers, and road safety.

In addition, their proprietary solution has won them several awards and helped form significant partnerships with Toyota Tsusho Group, Mobility 54, and Prudential Insurance.

How it Works

AiCare determines a driver’s accident risk score using a data-driven technique, allowing motor vehicle insurers to compute customized premium rates based on real-time data on driving behavior and distance traveled. 

Their system provides incentives for safe driving, lowering premium prices for good drivers and lowering the risk associated with motor insurance.
