How technology is changing the way we move


Mobile apps are changing the way we commute in daily life. Here are 5 apps and services that make taking the wheel a little safer by minimizing distraction from cellphones to dispatching quick response teams.



Kruzr minimizes distraction by cellphones by handling calls through a ‘smart chatbot’. The app first declines the call and initiates a chat with the caller to inquire if the call is important. If the person says yes, then he/she is asked to call again and the app forwards it. The app is also sensitive to speed and can detect when the car is being driven, stationary or if there has been an accident. It picks up their current location and its backend connects with the nearest possible help if a user is involved in an accident.
