Followers of this blog have already heard about hardware recently developed by researchers at India’s Anna University of Technology that impairs drivers’ mobile cellphone signals. A new report goes into further detail on this RFID-utilizing technology, known as the Cellphone Accident Preventer. The technology allows passengers to continue to use their phones, but when a driver attempts to do the same, the system triggers a jammer and an antenna to disable the mobile signal in a localized area above the driver’s seat. Police are alerted when the offense occurs, leading to the potential for a ticket to be issued for the phone usage.
