Safe Drive an interesting feature in the application is the Driving alert. When there is a call ringing on the mobile phone, and the user is driving at more than 20km speed ("Drive Alert Minimum Speed" this number will denote the minimum speed beyond which the calls will be terminated with the alert SMS.
It is possible to specify the speed as 0km - in this case - irrespective of whether the user is driving or stationary, all the calls will be terminated), then it automatically sends a short message service (SMS) to the caller saying that the user is at a given location and driving at a given speed.
The SMS will have a link showing the user's location on Google Map, and will also indicate to the caller that the user is driving at some given speed.
This feature gives the app user undisturbed and undistracted driving experience. The user can turn on/off driving alert location on his or her mobile, or choose to disable driving alerts.
In the notification bar, we are showing the speed of the user - if the user is stopped, it will not be visible in the notification bar and seen only when the user is moving.
