What the Press is saying
Every year distracted driving causes 1.6 million auto crashes and half a million injuries, taking 6000 lives in the US alone. Groove is now recognized as THE technical solution to distracted driving.
Then, he thought about how texting and driving is only going to get worse. "The entrepreneur kicks in. 'Wow, maybe there's a solution,' " Tibbitts said, recalling what he thought to himself at the time. "Maybe there's an invention that could do this that could save a lot of lives."View Story
“So if someone tries to send me a text message now, they get a message that says, ‘Scott’s driving, being protected by Groove, he’ll get his message when he arrives at his destination,'” Tibbitts said.View Story
"Being a parent, I cannot imagine getting a phone call that says there's been an accident," Tibbitts emotionally conveyed. "And everybody that's in this is in this because those phone calls are going to go away."View Story
How We Do It
Katasi Groove uses a direct telematics connection from your car or truck to the internet, to know when a drive starts, and to quickly and positively identify the driver. Once we identify the driver, we block distracting content at the network level before it can reach the phone. Blocked messages are stored and then forwarded when you reach your destination.
WORKS LIKE MAGIC
Groove technology determines who is in the vehicle, who is driving, and which distractions to block. Groove's intelligence creates the best possible user experience for every scenario.
Katasi technology partners, including MobileIron (MDM), Geotab (Fleet Telematics), and leading U.S. Telcos, have invested along with us to help Groove limit distractions on your mobile phone while you are driving.
Leveraging Good Intentions
We believe that drivers recognize the danger of texting while driving, but the need to stay connected can often be too tempting. Groove is the tool to eliminate the temptation and helps you focus on the road.
Groove works on any phone. When you start your drive, distractions and alerts are disabled and saved in the cloud. Once you arrive at your destination, full function returns to the phone and stored messages are forwarded.
