Drive Angel is an alerting system/app intended for drivers that quickly and reliably alerts relevant authorities and your designated contacts in the event of a car accident (ambulance; fire brigade; police; towing service, etc.).
The system is designed so that it does not interfere with the driver while driving and in the event of a traffic accident it communicates with the ORYX call center and/or alerts your designated contacts that there was an accident and providing information about the circumstances of the accident.
Some of the information that the Drive Angel sends to relevant authorities (e.g. ambulance) includes GPS location, pre-accident speed, and other driver information like blood type, allergies, etc. By communicating without human intervention, the information arrives at the right place in the shortest possible time, avoiding the “human factor” and any possibility of mistake in the report.
Drive Angel is a three-tier system consisting of a smartphone app, a server application, and a database. The system processes real-time data obtained from sensors built into smartphones and monitors a set of parameters to determine the condition of the vehicle in traffic.
Drive Angel, in combination with other elements of passive car safety, increases the overall level of personal safety in traffic. Having said that, Drive Angel is a safety “supplement” and not a solution to protect against the consequences of a traffic accident.
Like any other road safety improvement system, the Drive Angel app/system has some inherent limitations that we don’t have control of, meaning we cannot guarantee that the system will function reliably at any time and in any possible situation.
