Since 2019, Nishinihon Food has conducted face-to-face alcohol tests and roll calls for drivers using DNP’s Safe Driving Management Support System. However, there were issues in dealing with drivers who did not stop by the office and in saving records.
In this demonstration experiment, an alcohol breathalyzer can be connected to a smartphone, and the smartphone application “Safe Driving Management Application mamoru” developed by DNP and IDS, which can be tested for alcohol in a short time, will be used to remotely test the driver for alcohol. and verify the confirmation work.
The demonstration experiment is scheduled to be conducted from February 1, 2023 to March 31, 2023. Targets employees who use a company car for business trips and do not stop by the office.
In the experiment, we will verify the effectiveness of the alcohol test, health condition confirmation, identity authentication using a driver’s license, and spoofing prevention functions. We will also check the ease of alcohol testing and the ease of answering the confirmation items.
The safe driving management application mamoru connects smartphones and alcohol detectors via short-range wireless communication Bluetooth, allowing multiple people to share the detector. In addition, by holding the driver’s license over the smartphone, it authenticates and checks if the driver’s license has not been carried or the driver’s license has expired. Furthermore, when the measurement is started, the smartphone’s camera is activated and a photograph of the face is taken to prevent spoofing.
DNP and IDS will sell this system to all companies (including white license plate operators) that use cars for sales, delivery, maintenance, etc., aiming for cumulative sales of 1 billion yen by fiscal 2026. bottom.
