Telit modules used in real time, wireless breath alcohol device

Telit Wireless Solutions, the North American technology arm of Telit Communications PLC (Trieste, Italy), announced that its cellular M2M module will provide wireless connectivity for breath alcohol ignition interlock provider LifeSafer’s (Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.A.) wireless breath alcohol device, which allows law enforcement authorities to monitor DUI offenders in real time.

Telit’s CC864-DUAL M2M module will be used to connect LifeSafer’s FC100 Wireless Ignition Interlock with camera and GPS, to wirelessly transmit daily reports, immediately notify authorities of offenders who exceed alcohol limits, and contact emergency responders if a user attempts to circumvent the device, says Telit.

Court-mandated ignition interlock programs require DUI offenders to provide a BrAC (breath alcohol content) sample below a preset limit before the vehicle can be started.  With previous devices, authorities would have to wait 30 to 60 days before the DUI offender could upload monitoring information during a scheduled visit, according to Telit.

Using the Telit CC864-DUAL module with GPS capabilities, authorities can view data instantly online with the LifeSafer Plus system, including all logged and time-stamped photographs, driver locations, BrAC levels, retest results and tampering attempts, says Telit.
