'Derive VQ' is a revolutionary device that aims to end distracted driving. With all the smart accessories in cars, it can be hard to resist the allure of a mobile screen, but thanks to Derive VQ, this temptation can be completely blocked out. The Derive VQ is currently only available to fleet customers, but based on the overwhelming praise the device got at CES 2018, it is likely the Derive VQ will be open to the public soon.

Derive VQ is a combination of a device and an application. The app simply syncs up with the car's computer via an ODII dongle and allows users to control certain aspects of the driving experience. The app is primarily being marketed towards parents of teens as the Derive VQ allows them to ensure seatbelts are fastened, phones unusable, and can even monitor and shut off engines in the case of excessive speeding.

The app gives parents access over almost anything with a host of parameters that can be changed down to the smallest detail. Unlike other products that just provide driving reports, the Derive VQ actively stops bad habits.
