Cellcontrol works across all mobile platforms, but what makes our solution unique is that we're the only solution capable of fully blocking iPhone and iOS devices. Other solutions simply remind the user to not text while driving, but Cellcontrol actually stops the unsafe behavior. In simplest terms, when your vehicle is moving, your safe driving policy is active and DriveID 'tells' your phone to stay on its home screen, or send a call to voice mail. For a deeper explanation, read on.
All applications on iOS run in a "sandbox". This sandbox prevents applications from interfering with both OS functions and applications. This means, an application running on an iPhone cannot block a phone call, stop texting, or prevent the user from browisng Facebook. This is why other solutions simply remind the user to not text while driving.
Cellcontrol's patented solution is able to overcome this limitation through the use of the DriveID hardware device. Think of the hardware device as an external keyboard, similiar to a keyboard you may have used for your iPad or iPhone to type out a long email. As the user presses keys on the external keyboard, iOS performs an action. Cellcontrol uses this same type of mechanism to block dangerous behavior.
