Xplore Technologies talk about the Blank-it distracted driving solution on their “Rugged XPlore Blog”.
In the article, Bob Ashenbrenner discusses the various in-vehicle distractions that drivers are subjected to and the responsibilities that employers have to keep their workforce safe on the road.
As Bob says:
So what if I told you that devices could actually eliminate our distraction from devices? Seems ironic, sure. But the fact is that your field service workers spend a majority of their time on the road in your service vehicle. They have tablets or other devices mounted practically in front of their face and it’s human nature to want to look at what’s on that screen. You have a responsibility to keep them safe on your watch, so why not fight fire with better fire and install a “Blank-it” type software coupled with motion-detecting vehicle docks on all your devices that absolutely shouldn’t be in use while driving? That protects them, you and everyone else on the road from the consequences of distracted driving.
Bob also refers to an earlier article from Motion Computing, a PDF version of which can be viewed here – Taking Aim Against Distracted Driving.
