Cambridge Mobile Telematics Partners with Verizon to Bring Driving Insights to the Smart Family App
Cambridge Mobile Telematics (CMT), the global leader in
smartphone telematics, has partnered with Verizon (VZ) to bring new
premium features to the Verizon Smart Family app, including teen
driver monitoring and scoring, and crash detection that notifies
family members after an accident.
The Smart Family app provides these premium features through
CMT’s DriveWell platform, using onboard phone sensors to detect
risky behaviors like speeding, phone distraction while driving,
rapid acceleration, and harsh braking. Now, parents subscribed to
Smart Family Premium can see a driving score based on their teens’
last week of car trips, and a detailed individual trip view to
understand where and when the risky behavior occurred. Young
drivers can focus on how to improve their driving, and parents can
better understand how their children behave behind the wheel.
Additionally, Smart Family now detects car crashes, notifying
parents in the event of an accident and providing key details like
location. Driving insights and crash detection will help parents of
teen drivers get peace of mind while helping them track and improve
their own driving behavior.
“One of the biggest worries parents have is when their children
are in vehicles without a parent,” said Hari Balakrishnan, CMT’s
co-founder and CTO. "We are delighted to partner with Verizon to
bring these premium safe-driving features to the Smart Family app
to provide parents with peace of mind, and to help all drivers in
the family improve their driving."
These premium features for the Smart Family app are now included
with several other key family safety technologies, including
location tracking for parents, pick-me-up requests, screen time
limits, and parental content filters, and can be controlled within
the settings menu of the Smart Family app. The Smart Family app is
available for download on the Google Play Store and the iOS App
Store. To learn more about CMT, visit CMT.ai.
