TransitHound™ is a compact and discreet, calibrated receiver designed to detect all cell phone use by distracted drivers. When coupled with a camera and mobile DVR, TransitHound allows owners, dispatchers and managers to keep a watchful eye on their drivers by keeping their driving safe and legal for everyone. Whether your drivers are operating a train, bus or a truck; Transithound will enforce a NO CELL PHONE USE policy in any vehicle where an impaired or distracted driver can endanger the public's safety without interfering with the public use of any wireless devices. TransitHound's system works simply...when any voice, text or cellular data is detected from the driver's area TransitHound timestamps the event and triggers video or still recording of offending cell phone.
