CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 09/04/14 -- Cellcontrol, the world's technology leader in stopping distracted driving, announced today the public unveiling of its second generation distracted driving platform, DriveID.

DriveID's unique "Place and Protect" hardware platform allows quick installation on the windshield of the vehicle, requiring no wires, no interference or competition with the vehicles OBD port, making it a perfect data collection platform for a UBI program. DriveID's patented data transmission technology, which leverages the mobile device data plan, is the lowest cost and most granular data collection platform available in the marketplace.
