Drivemode is a company that has used artificial intelligence to create a mobile application that connects the user to their car using a platform which allows for them to use technology safely while driving. It is compatible with both Android and iOS systems but the applications are slightly different depending on the system.
Users can download Drivemode onto their phones and use voice-enabled commands and large buttons which are designed to help drivers keep focused on the road. It can be integrated into other popular mobile applications such as Waze, Spotify, and Facebook Messenger. All of the features are intended to aid the user with driving safely. One example of a feature is the capability of replying to a message or text using voice command. Another feature allows for the users to set up a "Do Not Disturb" mode so that incoming calls and messages will receive that notification. The app also enables automatic launch of Bluetooth pairing so that the user automatically connects to their car.
