Cellcontrol Extends Licensing of First Anti-Distracted Driving Technology to Aftermarket Automotive Industry For Use in Next Generation In-Car Infotainment Systems

Cellcontrol™, the industry’s leading developer of distracted driving solutions, announced today at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that it is the first tech firm to offer its patented non-pairing Bluetooth communication technology to aftermarket automotive suppliers of next-generation multi-media, navigation units and Android powered receivers. Utilizing real time vehicle status, Cellcontrol instantly blocks the inappropriate or illegal use of a driver’s cell phone, tablet, laptop computer or other mobile device while driving.

As mobile devices such as phones and tablets become increasingly sophisticated and powerful, they also become more distracting to drivers. Last year the US Department of Transportation issued guidelines to the automotive industry urging them to build into every vehicle the capability to limit the use of distracting features for drivers in a moving vehicle, including mobile devices. To accomplish that objective, the automotive industry need a way to communicate speed or motion to the driver’s phone within a moving vehicle. Cellcontrol’s non-pairing Bluetooth solution provides that platform, which is far more automated, more effective, and less invasive than traditional pairing methods.

“By offering our signaling technology to the aftermarket automotive industry, we believe we can set a safety foundation for the industry to build truly effective solutions for stopping distracted driving,” said Kevin Coppolino, vice president of Cellcontrol. “In addition, there is virtually no manufacturing or technology integration cost for an aftermarket vendor to add this capability to their next generation multimedia and navigation units.”

To demonstrate how the technology works, Cellcontrol executives attending CES will be offering free in-car demonstrations on the streets of Las Vegas during the last two days of the show. To reserve a demonstration, please contact public relations director, David Splivalo, at 703-798-2395 or email him at [email protected]. Cellcontrol is located at booth #3233 in the North Hall at the CES.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
