Cellcontrol announced the public unveiling of its second generation distracted driving platform, DriveID. In addition to the company’s award winning core technology that prevents texting, emailing, and other inappropriate mobile device use while driving, Cellcontrol’s DriveID also fully supports driver behavior monitoring and location based services. Modus has included DriveID into their extensive UBI solution offering.
The DriveID platform delivers several new and enhanced functionalities important to both insurers and their customers, including:
- Integration with Usage Based Insurance (UBI) programs and auditable data capture, storage and mining,
- Flexible policy control management and compliance reporting for use by parents, guardians and policy issuers, and
- Support for safe driver incentive programs to increase policy compliance and make safer driving both fun and rewarding.
DriveID’s unique “Place and Protect” hardware platform allows quick installation on the windshield of the vehicle, requiring no wires, no interference or competition with the vehicles OBD port, making it a perfect data collection platform for a UBI program. DriveID’s patented data transmission technology, which leverages the mobile device data plan, is the lowest cost and most granular data collection platform available in the marketplace.
“We are pleased to provide the leading technologies addressing both the prevention of distracted driving and the delivery of data required by various service platforms like insurance, GPS tracking, location based services, and driver performance and safety. While we are continuing to deliver tremendous value to our employer and retail customers through the prevention of distracted driving, we are also providing critical integration elements for other industry leaders interested in enhancing driver safety, through location-based and performance-monitoring services.” – Joe Breaux, Chief Technology Officer at Cellcontrol
