ARLINGTON, VA -- July 29, 2014: Today, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) announced it is developing a technical report to document the products and services offered by the consumer electronics (CE) industry that help make the driving experience safer. The report, planned for release at the 2015 International CESŪ, January 6-9, 2015 in Las Vegas, will educate drivers about the wide array of CE technologies designed to improve safety and awareness behind the wheel.

“The rapidly-evolving consumer electronics industry is constantly introducing innovations that allow drivers to stay focused on their primary task, driving safely”

“The rapidly-evolving consumer electronics industry is constantly introducing innovations that allow drivers to stay focused on their primary task, driving safely,” said Dave Wilson, vice president, technology & standards, CEA. “There are a wide variety of technology solutions already on the market to minimize driver distraction, and our goal is to collect and categorize this information for our technical report. From apps that restrict cell phone use while driving to drowsiness detection devices that help avoid accidents, we want to share what the industry is doing to make the driving experience even safer.”

Companies that offer products or services to increase driver safety and reduce distracted driving are encouraged to submit descriptions of their technology for inclusion in the report. Interested entities must submit a Word document containing the product or service description (maximum 750 words) to report@standards.ce.org. Graphic images (jpg format preferred) are also welcome.

The deadline for submitting content is Friday, August 15, 2014, at 5 PM PDT. All content will be edited and approved by CEA and its Portable, Handheld and In-Vehicle Electronics Committee.
