The product is a combination of three elements:
The SafeDrivePod itself, mounted somewhere in the vehicle, sends out a wireless radio signal to indicate when the vehicle is driving.
A powerful app running on your phone that shuts off all access to apps when you are driving. You are allowed to make hands-free phone calls and use your navigation apps.
An important aspect of our concept is your safety. Your manager made a deal with you to get you and the car home safely. He/she will get informed about how you use the SafeDrivePod system.
Fleet managers want their drivers to arrive home safely every day. Instead they deal with increased numbers of car accidents and increased cost of claims. An alarming 25% of the total cost of car damage is related to the driver being distracted by his or her smartphone.
SafeDrivePod prevents smartphone caused distraction during driving. SafeDrivePod offers a complete solution that ensures the touch screen of the smartphone is blocked during driving.
A SafeDrivePod in each vehicle ensures fleet managers that drivers cannot use their smartphones during driving. This leads to a reduction in car damage and cost from claims. Above all, it contributes to improved road safety and more certainty that employees will arrive home safely.Learn more!

On 10 August 2016 Tomasz Kroker was driving a truck on the A34 – ahead of him was a very visible long queue of traffic travelling uphill. The truck was travelling at 50mph, and Kroker made no attempt to reduce speed when he hit the first vehicle.

The smartphone has entered our lives and it seems we cannot live without it, not even when we are driving. Although we know we should not do it, we immediately tend to respond when we hear a notification of a new message. Countries have regulations that prohibit smartphone use during driving but the authorities are not able to enforce these regulations at all times. There are tools in the market that help you to avoid distraction but each of these tools can easily be avoided.
The combination of the three elements (hardware, software and server) make SafeDrivePod a unique and innovative tool and the only product in the market that cannot be tampered with without knowing.
SafeDrivePod provides a return on investment (ROI) within one year by reducing cost. The estimated ROI is about 4:1, so it is not only an investment in safety!
A SafeDrivePod in each vehicle ensures the fleet manager that drivers can only use their smartphones for hands-free calls during driving. This leads to reduction of car damage and claim cost reduction. Above all it contributes to improved road safety and more certainty that employees will arrive home safe. SafeDrivePod is good business, good employment practice and good social responsibility!
Although it is difficult to get the hard numbers, for obvious reasons, it is estimated that 25 percent of all car accidents happen because the driver was distracted by his or her smartphone. A third of all employees are texting while driving and 30% of this group experienced a near-car accident as a result of texting. The experience did not change their behavior! Employees tend to continue texting and swiping whilst driving. Business drivers that use their smartphone during driving are younger than the average business driver and almost half of them (46%) are under the age of 41.
