The fuel cell based breathalyser can even trigger smartphone actions to back up the results with images and GPS positions. By taking photographs, recording GPS positions and scanning other units close by, the alcometer can help rental companies or car owners ensure that the right person is using the breathalyser before driving.
iBAC has been tested by MHF International road safety test lab and received top marks for its reliability and accuracy. A fraction of the size of competing products, the device is small enough to be used as a key ring.
Swedish manufacturer Alcosystems says the device is already being used professionally at American penal institutions and Swedish rehab centres. The user-friendly app communicates with and stores results directly on the phone for private users or in a cloud service for commercial use.
Drivers that use the iBAC solution can undergo scheduled breathalyser tests before, during and after a shift; a solution that is perfect in jobs where zero alcohol tolerance is of particular importance, such as pilots, police, fire fighters, train drivers, commercial drivers, doctors or paramedics.
Next step would be to have a vehicle immobilizer linked to the results, like in the bulkier alcolock solution provided by UK competitor.
