Preventing traffic accidents across the globe.
Smartphone distraction in traffic is one of the biggest social problems of recent times. It even ranks second in the list of traffic annoyances. We all know that using a smartphone in traffic is dangerous, but research shows that 62% of drivers use their smartphone in traffic anyway.
25% of all road accidents are caused by distraction!
As an employer you are responsible for the safety of your employees. So, when you discourage smartphone use while driving you not only increase road safety, but you also create significant cost savings. Ask for the ROI calculation for your fleet.
How it works
SafeDrivePod is the comprehensive solution for smartphone/tablet use in traffic for both motor vehicles and bicycles. It ensures that the phone screen cannot be used while driving and is available for both Android and iOS.
Hands-free options (voice-activated calling and car kit) are still usable, as are navigation apps on Android (Google Maps, Waze, etc.) and iOS (Apple Maps).
The SafeDrivePod system consists of three elements:
Pod: The SafeDrivePod itself is mounted somewhere in the vehicle and transmits a wireless signal to indicate whether the vehicle is moving.
App: The app on your phone keeps track of whether you are driving and then makes access to all apps impossible. Only hands-free calling and navigation apps are still possible. For your safety!
Dashboard: Both you and the fleet manager can monitor your compliance of the SafeDrivePod system. If you want to outsmart the system, it will affect your score.
A complete solution:
Only blocks the screen while driving
Navigation and calls
No GPS usage needed
For Android and iOS
For cars, bikes, vans, buses and trucks
Once you’ve installed the SafeDrivePod in the car, you will notice:
The smartphone screen is blocked while driving.
If the car is stationary for more than 5 seconds, you can use your phone again.
Hands-free calling via car kit or voice-control remains possible.
Android: all navigation apps remain fully usable.
iOS: Apple Maps for map display on the phone; all navigation apps can be used via Apple CarPlay.
Spotify: start your playlist before driving or use Android Auto/Apple CarPlay to switch between songs.
