Lemur Vehicle Monitors Launches Sensor Tool to Monitor Teen Drivers

Lemur Vehicle Monitors, an engineering concern located in Newfoundland, has introduced a new tool named the ‘SafeDriver’ that would be of immense help to parents. It monitors the erratic and rash driving done by youngsters.


This device notes down the maximum speed, distances traveled and also keeps a count of sudden braking incidents taking place during every journey undertaken, to keep tabs on the young drivers. A latest study carried out by Aviva, in Canada, reveals that when compared to experienced drivers, the young drivers not only have a 41% more claim frequency, but also a 44% more claim severity.

This tool has two components, a key fob and a sensor. The sensor is a black box that is to be fixed into the diagnostic port of the vehicle, normally seen beneath the steering wheel. The mechanic accesses the same port, whenever there is a check engine light flashing. According to Greg Browne, Lemur Vehicle’s product development engineer, the sensor communicates to the computer inside the vehicle, and gathers the necessary data, which is then transmitted wirelessly to the key fob. The key fob displays are battery operated, and can be fixed on the car’s dashboard. To make it tamper-proof, the key fob is PIN-protected. If the youngster endeavors to break the PIN, take out the sensor plug or take away the battery, the display on the key fob will flash a message ‘Tamper’, and thus the tool cannot be messed up easily.
