Aerospace Company Designs Co-Pilot App to Defeat Distracted Driving

Distracted driving due to phone use is the new impaired driving. As the summer road trip season begins, specific Range Solutions launches AutoAdvisory 2.0, a full-featured iPhone app that ensures drivers focus their attention where it belongs—on the road.

The National Safety Council estimates that one-quarter of all vehicle collisions are due to phone use. AutoAdvisory 2.0 significantly reduces the risk of distracted driving by operating as a vigilant co-pilot. The intelligently interactive app advises the driver not to use their iPhone when driving is detected, continuously monitors their device to ensure it's not unlocked during the trip, and provides feedback at the end of the trip via the Auto Debrief feature—all while maintaining privacy and not affecting the functionality of your iPhone.

"Our ultimate goal is to save lives. The solution therefore needed to be safe, effective and reliable. We are an aerospace engineering company, and I am a commercially rated pilot, so we applied the same level of rigor in designing AutoAdvisory 2.0 as we do for our aerospace clients," said Omer Majeed, founder, Specific Range Solutions Ltd.

AutoAdvisory 2.0 also enables drivers to share their safe driving milestones via Facebook and Twitter with family and friends. These milestones could be used by a parent to reward a teen with a tank of gas for safe driving, or a fleet manager to incentivize drivers to keep their focus on the road.

AutoAdvisory 2.0 is available on the App Store today for only $0.99 USD and provides the following new functionality to protect your loved ones:

"Your AutoAdvisory Stats";
Total and last safe trip distances in either miles or kilometers;
Driving detection via Bluetooth or in-vehicle charging;
Sharing safe driving accomplishments via Twitter.
