Global Mobile Alert Saving Lives By Increasing Intersection And Traffic Light Location Awareness
With the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimating that up to ten people are killed every day in the U.S. due to distracted driving, with smartphones the usual culprit, The Solution™ from Global Mobile Alert is just the right product to immediately reduce these figures.
Los Angeles, CA –June 6, 2017 –Global Mobile Alert (GMA), the leading innovator of in-vehicle safety solutions, today announced that the company’s flagship product, The Solution™, saves lives by increasing intersection and traffic light location awareness. The Solution™, a patented cellphone safety system, alerts drivers who are on voice calls to the proximity of intersections and is capable of communicating the signal, phase and timing of traffic lights to approaching drivers.
Roger Lanctot, Director Automotive Connected Mobility Global Automotive Practice, of Strategy Analytics says, “Global Mobile Alert’s solution for alerting drivers to the location of upcoming traffic light equipped intersections and its ability to wirelessly communicate the signal phase and timing of those lights can help reduce distracted driving, intersection crashes, and the resulting fatalities and injuries.”
“Global Mobile Alert’s main focus is on collaborating with industry leaders to deploy solutions that truly prevent crashes and save lives,” says Demetrius Thompson, Founder and CEO for Global Mobile Alert. “After being hit by a car driven by a distracted driver, not once but twice, in two separate incidences, I knew I had to develop The Solution™. And the pieces are now in place to address intersection and traffic light location awareness.”
The Solution™ is not limited to only applications regarding intersection and traffic light locations. With driverless vehicles becoming a reality sooner than later, Global Mobile’s ultimate objective is also in enabling the safest automated vehicles possible. The company has relationships with most of the major auto manufacturers and wireless carriers, and has four more patented solutions ready to be deployed as the market matures and dictates.
Thompson continues, “There is so much more we can and will do going forward, but we are focused on what can be done and deployed right now to start saving lives immediately. We have all the partnerships lined-up and it is only a matter of a short time that The Solution™ and other technologies will be in every vehicle being manufactured and sending alerts to drivers in every car being driven down the road.”
In addition to its relationships with the OEMs and Carriers, Global Mobile Alert is also working very closely with the US DOT, where Global Mobile Alert’s technology is also currently available to US DOT Testbed participants that are interested in collaborating. Participants can either contact Global Mobile Alert directly or facilitate a meeting via the US DOT affiliated Testbed program. All collaborations require a license form Global Mobile Alert. Global Mobile Alert’s technology is a practical solution that fits with the US DOT’s roadmap.
Lanctot concludes, “This is the new era of safety, which is enabled by wireless technology and increasingly accurate map data. The ultimate objective isn’t just avoiding car crashes it is enabling automated driving – and since intersections remain one of the greatest challenges to automated driving, the time to consider and implement The Solution™ is now.”
