We the founders have created Konnected Universe in order to prevent accidents and tragedies that are caused by phone usage while driving. Due to the unexpected and accidental death of a dear friend's daughter which was caused by texting while driving, we have been inspired to find a way to prevent future misfortunes like these.
Our mission is to create a "Safe Zone" within the vehicle that is operated by a less distracted driver leading to safer roads resulting in fewer deaths. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA, latest statistics $46 Billion in Economic loss and $129 Billion in Societal harm are attributed to accidents caused by Distracted Drivers.
Trained as engineers, we put our brains together and came up with a method to detect the motion of a car using the mobile device and and another method to wirelessly detect the presence of the mobile device in the driver’s quadrant. We searched the prior art database and realized that the idea was novel and decided to file for a patent.
The patent was granted on March 31, 2015. Later that year we learned that it was ranked as one of top ten patents in 2015, along with those of IBM, Google, Intel, Boeing, Qualcomm to name a few technology titans.
