All parents worry about the day their children take to the streets in an automobile but thanks to a new iPhone App, good behavior is going to be a lot harder to fake.
No news is good news for parents (or businesses) who install this amazing new application on their teenagers (or employees) iPhone.
A new app called Safe Driver Program created by Chet Karella of Dangerous Decisions takes advantage of the internal GPS locator systems and accelerometer combined with the incredible speed of the 3G networks to provide the instant capability to know when an iPhone toting driver exceeds whatever speed or acceleration set points you want them to stay below.
The Safe Driver program documents Acceleration, Braking, Cornering and Speed.
Once desired set points are entered, the program records the speed and even calculates the g forces experienced by the driver.
To encourage users to stay compliant, both versions also provide color visual and audio sound alarms when a driver comes within 95 percent of any set point limit (e.g., 55 MPH) identified by a user.
Designer Chet Karella says the programs are designed to be particularly useful for parents who want to monitor their newly licensed teen drivers, and for managers of truck and automobile fleets seeking assurance that their employees drive within speed limits and maintain safe driving behaviors on the job.
The Basic version of the app is free and the Pro Version goes for $24.99.
The Safe Driver programs are available at the Apple iTunes Store.
