CLYD reinforces drivers’ protection and reduces the dangers of using a phone while driving

According to the French road safety authority, "nearly 60% of French people use their smartphone while driving*", representing a real danger for all users.  In the transport sector, this finding is all the more worrying. In addition to jeopardizing the employee and other road users’ safety, using the smartphone while driving also engages the company’s responsibility and its legal duty to manage potential risks in the workplace.

From the CLYD interface, the fleet manager can define the speed after which the terminal is to be blocked, preventing drivers from using it. The manager also defines the display mode if this threshold is exceeded, and can choose to leave applications active in the background.  This allows drivers to view navigation applications or answer calls via Bluetooth, for example, even though interaction with the screen is temporarily disabled.

« We developed this feature because we have many customers in the transportation industry or with vehicle fleets. Our aim is to offer a solution that enables remote management of devices while developing business functionality that meets the domain’s needs, particularly in terms of security.” emphasizes Christophe Billaud, General Manager at Telelogos
