Forsman & Bodenfors created this app titled 'Slow Down GPS' that is programmed to transition into a child's voice GPS system in certain areas. The app will use the GPS navigation system to guide drivers through school zones, parks, day cares and other child-populated areas.

The idea is to encourage drivers to be more cautious and drive safer in child-oriented areas. The app's promotional video explains that as humans, our innate ability to care for children will subconsciously force a user's senses to be heightened.

This creative child voice GPS app will allow drivers to be fully alert in crucial zones. Since children are less likely to be paying attention to the roads, this app ensures that drivers will stay alert and focused.
