VRM Telematics Introduces Sentinel™ to Keep Teenage Drivers Safer Behind the Wheel

‘Reporting Automobile Cellphone Use In Real Time, VRM’s Sentinel Provides the Accountability Necessary to Enforce Safe Driving Behavior

April 21st, 2015, RIDGELAND, Mississippi--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April is the National Safety Council’s Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and VRM Telematics is celebrating with today’s introduction of Sentinel™—a new consumer-based auto product that senses and reports incidents of cellphone use while behind the wheel. Created to curtail distracted driving due to mobile phone use, Sentinel is an ideal solution for parents of younger drivers: providing the accountability necessary to enforce safe driving behavior.

“The risks of distracted driving are substantial; but for teenage drivers they’re even greater,” said Jeremy Chalmers from VRM Telematics. “According to the CDC, teenage drivers are nearly 3 times more likely to be involved in serious auto crashes. But when talking, or worse yet texting behind the wheel, their risks are much higher. The National Safety Council reports that texting while driving increases the risk of auto crashes by up to 23 times.”

“Sentinel was developed to help parents enforce safe driving behavior,” continued Mr. Chalmers. “Unlike any generation before them, today’s teenagers are inseparable from their cellphones—staying in communication with one another 24/7. With Sentinel, parents will know immediately if their children are talking or texting while driving; where they are, even how fast they are going. More importantly, their teenagers will know that they’ll know. And this real-time accountability will ensure their compliance—dramatically reducing their risk of crash and serious injury behind the wheel.”

How Sentinel Works

Sentinel, new from VRM Telematics, effectively reports cellphone use while a vehicle is in motion. Easily installed in your car, it senses and reports cellphone activity to your online Sentinel account, which then notifies you in real time via email or text message. Unlike mobile phone Apps, which monitor activity only of the phone on which they’re installed, Sentinel tracks all cellphone use inside the car: issuing event reports that include vehicle speed, time and location.

About VRM Telematics

VRM Telematics, LLC, is a privately held company with offices in Ridgeland, MS. Our team of investors, entrepreneurs and employees create and promote solutions to end distracted driving, reduce accidents and provide parents with a means to encourage safe driving habits in their children.
