New Iphone application for safe driving

Software company, Dangerous Decisions, now offers ‘Safe Driver’, an iPhone app that enables owners to keep tabs on its employees who drive around in company vehicles.

This program uses the iPhone’s GPS transponder and accelerometer to measure and record vehicle acceleration, braking, cornering, and speed. Parameters can be set up by booting up the software and driving with the iPhone in the car. The results can be saved. Parents, managers, and other persons in authority immediately get an e-mail or a text message if the driver exceeds any of the saved parameters. Detailed reports indicating the route driven, top speed, and other violations will also be sent through email.

Dangerous Decisions has designed the program to encourage safe driving. When drivers reach 95% of any preset limit, they are warned by a flashing amber light and an audible tone. As soon as they break the parameter, the application will flash red and will emit a different tone. The basic ‘Safe Driver’ application can be downloaded for free, but the Pro version, which costs US$24.99, enables the administrator to customize parameters for various vehicles. Dangerous Decisions recommends that the iPhone be placed on a cradle or dock to prevent it from falsely recording excessive movement.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
