The future of UBI and distracted driving prevention relies on intelligent driver identification – and we’ve accomplished just that with DriveID.
Las Vegas (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
Today Cellcontrol TM, the world’s leading technology to stop distracted driving, unveiled the industry’s first and only driver identification platform, DriveID TM, at the mobile industry’s largest event, CTIA 2013. This groundbreaking technology allows Cellcontrol to accurately detect who sits in the driver’s seat, and only apply a safety policy to that individual’s mobile devices - leaving passengers free to talk, text, email and browse.
With the addition of DriveID, Cellcontrol continues to overcome industry usability challenges - providing the accuracy required for user-based insurance (UBI) programs and deeper distracted driving intelligence to protect drivers and their passengers.
According to distraction.gov, more than nine people are killed and 1,060 more are injured every day in crashes that involve a distracted driver. Further, drivers who use mobile devices are four times more likely to get into injurious crashes. Through its cutting edge, non-pairing Bluetooth signaling technology, DriveID brings a user-friendly distracted driving solution to families and fleets.
“The future of UBI and distracted driving prevention relies on intelligent driver identification – and we’ve accomplished just that with DriveID,” said Joe Breaux, chief technology officer of Cellcontrol. “Our company continues to innovate the industry through technology and usability advances, and we look forward to bringing DriveID to the marketplace in the coming months as we continue to reduce the number of preventable auto crashes.”
In the second half of 2013, consumers and fleet administrators can purchase a solar-powered DriveID standalone device, which is simply placed on a vehicle’s windshield. This device will integrate with Cellcontrol’s signature non-pairing Bluetooth technology to enforce usage policy, score usage, and/or audit usage of only the driver's phone.
