Additionally, we have extended our support for local governments and road management organizations in the Netherlands through our partnership with ANWB, aiding the improvement and safety of traffic infrastructure. This has been made possible by leveraging the wealth of non-personalized driving events data we have collected with Howden Driving Data, and our partnership provides ample opportunity for further development and advancement in this field.”
