Cambridge Mobile Telematics partners with Verizon

Cambridge Mobile Telematics has partnered with Verizon to bring new premium features to the Verizon Smart Family app, including teen driver monitoring and scoring, and crash detection that notifies family members after an accident.

The Smart Family app provides these premium features through CMT’s DriveWell platform, using onboard phone sensors to detect risky behaviors like speeding, phone distraction while driving, rapid acceleration, and harsh braking. Now, parents subscribed to Smart Family Premium can see a driving score based on their teens’ last week of car trips, and a detailed individual trip view to understand where and when the risky behavior occurred. Young drivers can focus on how to improve their driving, and parents can better understand how their children behave behind the wheel.

Additionally, Smart Family now detects car crashes, notifying parents in the event of an accident and providing key details like location. Driving insights and crash detection will help parents of teen drivers get peace of mind while helping them track and improve their own driving behavior.

These premium features for the Smart Family app are now included with several other key family safety technologies, including location tracking for parents, pick-me-up requests, screen time limits, and parental content filters, and can be controlled within the settings menu of the Smart Family app.
