About

SafeCell 360 was started 4 years ago by two friends with a common goal. To stop distracted driving. Being a father of 3 beautiful daughters this has always scared me when they drove. Together we came up with a concept for a solution to this growing problem "SafeCell 360". Over the past 4 years we have been developing and refining our full suite of products SafeCell 360 LTE, SafeCell 360 Consumer and SafeCell Enterprise to address the epidemic of Distracted Driving. Our solution was designed for the individual, teenage drivers and company employees. Distracted Driving occurs in every driving segment. We hear or see it in the media every day.

Texting while driving is now the leading cause of death among teenagers – surpassing drinking and driving, according to a study by Cohen Children’s Medical Center. Disturbing statistics from the report included:

  • More than 3,000 teens die each year in crashes caused by texting while driving
  • More than 50 percent of teens admit to texting while driving

"Independent surveys have shown that overall, 34% of teen texters ages 16-17 say they have texted while driving. That translates into 26% of all American teens ages 16-17."

SafeCell 360 is designed to work on both the Android and iPhone platforms. SafeCell 360 has been designed to fully integrate into Google's extensive Location Based Services technology.

SafeCell 360 provides parents the ability to limit the use of their teenage drivers access to their Android and iPhone devices while driving.

Once SafeCell 360 has determined that the device had met or exceeded the "Start Trip" speed, the application will automatically apply predefined limitations to the device.

SafeCell 360 is designed to block and or monitor Inbound and Outbound SMS/text, phone and emails. Once engaged the application will not allow the user access to these application to send an SMS/text message, initiate an Outbound call or send/read an email (Android). SafeCell 360 will also block access to all applications installed on the device via the SafeCell 360 Kiosk functionality. (Android)

SafeCell 360 is designed to monitor and capture all interactions of the user with the Android and iPhone device. Each time the user attempts to initiate any interaction with the device each instance is captured and recorded to the users account. This information is then used to create metrics on the users adherence to family or personal rules regarding cellphone usage.

SafeCell 360 has been certified and tested to work across all carriers throughout the United States.

SafeCell 360 wants to provide a free license to every high school driver in the United States that takes the pledge for free! We want to work with as many Independent School Districts "ISD" as possible to bring awareness to this growing issue. While having the teens pledge not to SMS/text, email, phone and access the internet while driving by offering our solution for free for the 2014/2015 school year.

SafeCell 360 will begin to reach out to and work with as many ISD's as possible to implement the No Texting while driving program and bring additional sponsors on board to the program to offer full range of incentives for the teens to participate in the programs.

The funding that we are seeking will provide SafeCell 360 the ability to reach out to as many ISD as possible across the country eventually in your area to develop these programs and provide the SafeCell 360 solution to your teenage drivers for free. Possibly saving them and others from being involved in a life altering accident.

Risks and challenges

The immediate risk of our project is growth. We currently have planned and built infrastructure to support over a million users with complete scalability.

Additional head count maybe necessary to work with the potential influx of interest from the many different ISD's located around the United States.
