Utilizing patent-pending technology, cellcontrol is aimed at helping prevent the 500,000 injury-resulting accidents that are caused each year by the use of a mobile device while driving. It can block one or many of the features that come equipped on a mobile phone.

A leading supplier of driving-while-distracted solutions, cellcontrol, has adapted its cellcontrol technology to Class A (SAE J1939), an industry standard that will allow cellcontrol to operate within a variety of fleet vehicles including commercial vehicles, school buses, heavy equipment, and other Class-A vehicles. Utilizing the vehicle's onboard computer, cellcontrol determines when the vehicle is moving at any speed and instantly blocks the use of a driver's cell phone, laptop computer, or other mobile device based on a company's distracted-driving policy. Mobile phone functions that cellcontrol can prevent include phone, text, e-mail, web, push-to-talk, and other distracting features. Calling 911 is always allowed as well as incoming texts, e-mails, and calls, which are received but cannot be accessed or responded to while the vehicle is moving. In addition to those features, cellcontrol will also report idle time, mileage, and speed capturing for fleet managers.
