New mobile phone jammer helps minimize road accidents

The jamming system operates whenever the driver turns on the ignition. The jamming device receives radiation emitted by the phone. The device can tell whether the mobile phone is being used by the driver or the passenger.

“Once the driver’s use of cell phone is detected, a low-range jammer deactivates the cell phone without affecting other passengers’ cell phones. The system is powered by the vehicle,” said Shabeer, the lead developer in the project.

Because now they have to consider the users device being jammed during commute, and how that might impact their app. I’m sure the percentage of users using this is very small, though.
