Software prevents mobile phone chatting while driving
Aegis Mobility has developed DriveAssist , software that offers parents and corporations the ability to stay in touch with their teens or employees, while ensuring responsible mobile phone use while driving.
DriveAssist detects when phones are moving at automobile speeds and then tells callers that the person they are trying to reach is driving.
Callers are invited to leave messages or call-back numbers., just like a personal assistant. The DriveAssist service will be available through Mobile Operators. The service allows E911 calls and includes an override feature so you can make calls while a passenger.
