Demetrius Thompson is a business development executive and technology innovator who specializes in smartphone development solutions for Connected Car innovation.

His company Global Mobile Alert Corporation (GMA) patented the use of wireless communication between the traffic light and a mobile device to determine the phase of the light in relation to the speed of the Connected Car in order to alert the driver, particularly in the event of the mobile phone being in use. Their executives envision a variety of scenarios and applications of this patent - but – the fundamental functionality revolves around cellular communication and V2X location technology.

The cellular telephone safety system Global Mobile Alert was introduced at the 2008 Telematics Awards conference in Detroit and today the technology is a key software feature in the Connected Car; the application using real time traffic data offers a new experience for drivers on a voice call. The benefit of alerting a driver to a traffic light and providing a new level of safety for drivers can only be achieved by licensing from Global Mobile Alert Corporation.

GMA is one of several companies collaborating with the U.S. Department of Transportation to define data movement standards related to Intersection Situation Data.

GMA was selected as a finalist for Best Aftermarket Device or Solutions Award by Telematics Update, the industry’s leading publication that recognizes the most outstanding innovative companies in automotive, public safety and GPS technology.

Claims

1. A method for improving safety in using a wireless communication device in a moving vehicle, the wireless communication device having an active voice mode wherein a person is speaking through the wireless communication device, and is capable of receiving a signal indicative of a nearby traffic light, comprising exercising the following steps by means of a computer program operating within the vehicle:
(a) determining if the location of the vehicle is within a predetermined distance from the traffic light;
(b) determining if the vehicle is moving;
(c) determining if the wireless communication device is in an active voice mode; and
(d) issuing an audible alarm in response to determining that (i) the vehicle is within the predetermined distance, (ii) the vehicle is moving, and (ii) the wireless communication device is in an active voice mode, whereby a user of the wireless communication device is warned of proximity to the traffic light.
2. The method of claim 1 including the step of determining if the traffic light is a red light or is calculated to be red by the time the vehicle reaches the intersection.
3. The method of claim 1 wherein the wireless communication device is a cellular telephone.
4. The method of claim 3 wherein the computer program operates within the cellular telephone.

V2X Connected Car Location Awareness Technology

Cellular telephone safety system


The Global Mobile Alert (GMA) crash avoidance application is the first of its kind and can be deployed in a Connected smartphone or in-vehicle telematics systems and provides audible alerts when a moving vehicle approaches an intersection while speaking through a Connected Smartphone at a dangerous predetermined speed.

GMA’s next test bed launch is with DSRC technology – instead of a map – to alert drivers to oncoming dangerous intersections.
