Re: Pipedream: Cellphone Ignition Systems

Recommended Posts

With this covid-crap going on, I for one have too much time on my hands. So, here's a suggestion to auto manufacturer's to design and implement by law a, "Cellphone Ignition System", in all vehicles. Each vehicle is equipped with a center console electronic safe with smart ignition technology like that of an DUI interlock ignition. Could this also be an aftermarket device required by law? At the onset to drive a motor vehicle, the driver MUST insert their cellphone into a console-safe that's one-way in. It's part of the ignition starting system. Once inserted, the "box" will read, "Stored", or something similar to indicate the cellphone is NOT accessible to the driver. Once the phone is secured, the car's system lock's the phone within and allows the car to start and drive in a normal manner. Once parked, the system unlocks the console and the phone is accessible to the driver. For those attempting to by-pass using a second phone, the car's electronics detects another cellphone and creates a shut-down warning.  Just for fun ... whaddya' think? Any other ideas?       R.
