NavStar Technologies has signed an agreement with Trinity Noble to add cell phone usage detection while driving to its portfolio of electronic onboard recorder (EOBR) hardware and services.

NavStar chairman & CEO N. Douglas Pritt said the recent ban on handheld cell phone use by commercial drivers is a boon to the company's EOBR product.

“The ability to provide this feature in 2012 will give us a significant competitive advantage,” said Pritt.

NavStar Technologies produces products and services for tracking/monitoring and reporting on the location and condition of cargo and other assets.

FMCSA research indicates a truck is three times more likely to be involved in a crash when a driver reaches for a hand-held phone. Field trials of the cell phone detection services are planned for the second quarter this year, the company said.
