Romex World has developed a new Driver Distraction Prevention (DDP) application which can be installed on to employees’ telephones. This DDP application will cut-off and block all voice calls and lock the keypad to prevent any texting (or emailing) less than 1 minute after the start of a business journey. Employees will receive an announcement via their phone if there is missed message requiring them to stop in a safe place and take the message.
This system is implemented by simply sending the application onto the employee’s GPS enabled mobile phone.
In addition to aspects such as speeding and fatigue, Romex application monitors other actions undertaken whilst driving – in particular the use of mobile phones. Romex has developed and provides a set of reports to measure which can inter alia:-
- Analyse speeding by comparing actual speed with the speed limit on the roads the employee has driven on.
- Monitor any fatigue, based on employees driving for too long without a break or driving on business after working for too long.
