The SMARTwheel is the first intelligent steering wheel cover to help prevent distracted driving. It installs like a regular steering wheel cover and uses patented sensing technology to detect the position of the driver's hands. Because most distractions require the driver to take one or both hands off the wheel, our device detects when the driver is distracted and alerts the driver in real-time to refocus him or her on the road ahead. These incidents are recorded for later review (via Bluetooth) through our companion mobile app, which allows parents and employers to track their driver's improvement and identify problem areas. Existing devices are recording devices, which activate too late, and cell phone disabling apps that only address 5% of the problem, the SMARTwheel is the first device to alert drivers to almost all types of distraction BEFORE a potential accident. The SMARTwheel has received international acclaim and has been featured on ABC's Shark Tank, CBS's Innovation Nation, and Hallmark Channel's Home & Family. After 5 years of development we launched the SMARTwheel this January at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The SMARTwheel is now available for the first time ever through our Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign: http://igg.me/at/smartwheelusa/x/9509847
