You’re Busted! Can you imagine getting an email message with a map and message like the one below?
No news is good news for parents(or businesses) who install this amazing new application on their teenagers (or employees) iPhone.
The brand new Safe Driver Program created by Chet Karella of Dangerous Decisions LLC. takes advantage of the internal GPS locator systems and accelerometer combined with the incredible speed of the 3G networks to provide the instant capability to know when an iPhone toting driver exceeds whatever speed or acceleration set points you want them to stay below.
The Safe Driver program documents Acceleration, Braking, Cornering and Speed.
Once desired set points are entered, the program records the speed and calculates the g forces experienced by the driver.
Two versions are available: Basic and Pro.
The Basic Safe Driver Program can be downloaded for free and allows a user to experience pre-set fixed g-force and speed limits. The violations are displayed and the last two trip reports are stored on the device for review.
The Safe Driver Pro version allows users to specify the speed and g force set points and identify how they want violations to be automatically reported and where.
When a violation occurs, the program will automatically send either a text message or an email message identifying the vehicle being used, the time the program started and stopped, the set point exceeded, the time of the infraction, and the duration that the set point was exceeded.
The Pro version of the program also provides users with the added capability of receiving a detailed trip report via Email that displays a map with drop pins indicating location of the vehicle when application was initiated and shutdown, a list of the set points, summary of violations and peak speed reached if speed set point were exceeded, the id of the vehicle driven and a detailed list of any violations for that trip.
To encourage users to stay compliant, both versions also provide color visual and audio sound alarms when a driver comes within 95 percent of any set point limit (e.g., 55 MPH) identified by a user.
Designer Chet Karella says the programs are designed to be particularly useful for parents who want to monitor their newly licensed teen drivers, and for managers of truck and automobile fleets seeking assurance that their employees drive within speed limits and maintain safe driving behaviors on the job.
Note: Accuracy may vary depending on iPhone version, area coverage and signal strength and how secure the device is. For best results, we recommend using a cradle or holder.
