We introduce the Intelligent Driving Enhancement Asset (iDEA), a system that will prevent teenage drivers from texting while driving. This system will also allow parents to monitor their teenager’s driving habits with the help of an interactive website that allows the parent to enter a custom query about their teenager’s driving. The iDEA system will consist of a device that is located in the car that can sense when the car is mobile and lock the teenager’s phone. The device in the car will communicate with an application that is running on the Android smart phone. When the car is parked near the teenager’s residence, it will load driving data into a device at the house. The parents will then be able to use an interactive website to review their teenager’s driving behaviors. Below is a block diagram of our system.
