Antenna Detects Cell Phone Use In Vehicles

Posted on December 30, 2011

SALT LAKE CITY — Inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a company centered on telematics, fleet solutions and driving safety, is adding a cell and text detection antenna to its safety and fleet management offerings.

The antenna detects cell phone wave frequencies emitted from the driver’s seat, verbally warns the user to terminate the call or text and sends real-time alerts to a web portal or directly to a manager.

It is integrated with inthinc’s fleet management and driver safety solutions, waySmart and tiwiPro, and it can decipher various wave frequencies, including phone calls, text messages and e-mails. Fleet managers can adjust the settings to either send an in-cab voice alert to drivers when a cell signal is detected, or report the violation to the manager via e-mail or text alert.
