Driversiti is a cloud-based mobile safety platform that enables driver assistance systems via smartphone. The unique system differs from the competition by transforming a driver's own cellphone into a driving safety tool, which re-positions gadgets as a possible lifesaver rather than a potentially fatal distraction.

Based in Arlington, Virginia and Rochelle Park, New Jersey, Driversiti calls the information provided to driver's from the system "Situational Awareness." The Driversiti system also tracks one's driving habits to develop proprietary algorithms that, when combined with data regarding current road conditions, make up the bulk of the information provided to drivers.

The Driversiti system highlights the changing relationship between consumers and their smartphones, with the view of the gadgets moving toward that of naturalistic tool.
