These are some research article that I came through net will help your knowledge deep.
So Zhou, an assistant professor of civil engineering at the U., devised a key that transmits a Bluetooth radio frequency signal that disables the phone while still allowing it to place emergency calls.
The device encases the car key. When the key slides out, a disabling message is sent and a “stop” sign displays on the phone, Zhou said. Incoming calls and texts are automatically answered with the message: “I am driving now. I will call you later when I arrive at the destination safely.” The device can be programmed to allow incoming emergency calls or to work when the phone is operated with hands-free equipment.
The U. holds provisional patents on the technology, called Key2SafeDriving, and licensed it to the firm Accendo LC, which hopes to have a product on the market within six months. Projected cost per unit is less than $50, plus monthly service fees, according to Accendo, a Kaysville firm specializing in providing early-stage seed capital and business support for new technologies.
