Orion technology touted as increasing public safety
Orion Innovations, LLC, has introduced Signal-Safe®, a patent-pending, wireless technology providing a solution to the dangers posed by cell phone use during motor vehicle operation. Signal-Safe is designed to discourage driver cell phone use (and resulting distraction) to protect passengers and prevent motor vehicle crashes.
Signal-Safe technology continually monitors and logs a data report for cell phone use at the driver station while uniquely providing a solution to eliminate “false positives” (the logging of false events caused by the presence of signals that are not generated by a driver cell phone). Signal-Safe also eliminates the need for recurring subscriptions, cell phone specific “apps” and pre-programming.
In a pilot program conducted with the cooperation of an upstate New York school bus fleet in which school buses were monitored for a total of 8,512 miles, Orion Innovations installed Signal-Safe to determine if the presence of the technology would reduce driver cell phone usage. Monitoring cell phone usage without the drivers’ knowledge of Signal-Safe installation provided an initial data comparison base. Drivers were then informed that Signal-Safe had been installed and would log all driver cell phone events. The results were significant, showing an 84 percent reduction in driver cell phone use while buses were in operation.
