IQ Telematics, a pioneer in driver distraction mitigation technologies, announced that its proprietary system, iQ-Gateway, has been added to the official Federal Communications Commission Driver Distraction Solutions list on http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/driving_clearinghouse.html.
The list was established in 2009 as a result of U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski effort to get the DOT and FCC to work together on combating driver distraction.
This is not a Web site for hands free kits; it is a Web site that lists technological systems to suppress the phone while driver is moving. IQ-Gateway instead has what it describes as a more advanced system in that it allows for calls in and out when the conditions are not risky, and under a profile loaded on the cell phone. The system gives fleets, parents and licensing authorities the ability to enforce safety policies as they relates to phone and car usage so the entire driving experience is safe.
“It took a while, but we are happy we are on the list,” said iQ-Gatway founder Mouhamad A. Nablousi. “Now any fleet manger or a parent looking for a scalable solution to Driver Distraction can find us on this ‘go to page.’ From my experience, even NHTSA refer callers to the list and that includes calls from to the public, from companies and other governmental agencies.”
iQ-Gateway is listed under Applikompt, formally known as Applied Computer Technologies Inc., its parent. The listing refers the user to the Web site www.icallsafe.com, launched because a marketing study by Wayne State students found that the new name would be easier to remember for consumers.
Whether the reader find us under iQ-Telematics.com or under iCallSafe.com, the reader will find that iQ-Gateway is not just hands free system, but a “hands on wheel active safety” system. For more information, please contact Mr. Mouhamad A. Naboulsi at (248) 388-0211.
