Bluetooth Handsfree Wireless System – DriveBlue

DriveBlue, the first Bluetooth hands-free kit requiring no installation, is a revolutionary consumer electronic product destined to everyone. You just have to connect it to your car cigar-lighter to instantly handle calls in comfort and safety, without ever touching your mobile phone. The connection between DriveBlue and the phone is achieved wirelessly. Voice recognition allows you to place calls keeping your sights on the road.

DriveBlue works with all the Bluetooth phones on the market: Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Philips and Siemens. It is starting in March, available at telephony and accessories outlets throughout Europe, at a recommended user price under 170 €, inclusive all taxes.

The risky behaviour of drivers using their mobile is a raising concern. Legislation governing the use of mobile phones while driving has been passed in most countries. Yet it is a majority of people still occasionally drive with their mobile in their hand.

Hands-free solutions providing external microphones and speakers have been on the market for a while. Such solutions allow natural communication to take place, without need to hold on to the mobile. However, their adoption has been slow, with cost-effective products being perceived as too limited, while higher end solutions always involving installation constraints.

Parrot unveils the first solution that can lead to a better acceptance of hands-free systems: DriveBlue™, a non-intrusive, high-performance system requiring no installation, which adopts the Bluetooth™ wireless standard.

Another innovation from Parrot, a company which has become a leading supplier of hands-free systems, with a portfolio of customers including Peugeot, Citroen, Saab, Visteon, Siemens-VDO, Orange, Vodafone and KPN.
