bSafeMobile™ from Cogosense is software for smartphones and tablets that detects
driving state and automatically place the device in a Safe Mode while driving. In Safe Mode the device is silenced, incoming calls and texts are automatically replied to with an text message, and access to emails and browsing is restricted.
bSafeMobile uses an OBD-2 plug in your vehicle, and additionally the GPS on the Android device to provide feedback on driving behavior. Feedback is provided to young drivers and families through on‑device reporting of safety scores, infractions and events. Safety reports are only visible when not driving.
Administration controls and reporting for drivers are accessible through a Web-based parent portal. The administration portal provides access to reports and safety scores, setup of email notifications when specified events occur, maps showing the location, time and type of reportable events, and configurable features:
Handsfree override: If enabled, handsfree mode detects whether a wired or Bluetooth headset is attached and permits handsfree use of the device.
Whitelisting of specific numbers can be permitted.
Automatic responses to incoming Calls and Text messages.
Active period: The bSafeMobile app can be made active only at certain times of day and days of the week.
Passenger override: If enabled, a button appears on the curtain screen, allowing a passenger to self-certify as not driving and override Safe Mode.
