Blank-it is a combination of a multi-sensor, rugged USB and intelligent modular software technology. Once activated, the motion sensor technology recognizes a vehicle’s mobility and limits the display’s functionality, reducing visual, cognitive and physical distractions.
In 2013, distracted driving caused more than 3,100 deaths, 424,000 injuries and more than 616,000 damaged vehicles, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In addition to the human cost, on-the-job crashes cost employers more than $24,500 per crash, $128,000 per injury and $3.8 million per fatality, according to NHTSA.
Blank-It’s password-protected administration interface allows companies to determine the level of screen functionality for a fleet of any size, with options including passenger-only viewing, privacy screen, keyboard/mouse disabler, GPS override and voice command, with additional features in development. Easy to install, Blank-It can be embedded in a docking station or secured in a customized Havis Tamper Proof Cover without drilling or hardwiring. The technology operates without the need for antennas, power sources, GPS or third-party applications. Blank-It software is compatible with Windows XP (SP3), Vista, 7 and 10.
