Mobile Monday Detroit Explores the Many Ways Mobile Technology is Increasing the Safety of Individuals, Families and Businesses

Much has been discussed about the dangers of mobile technology when consumers use mobile devices for texting and other distracting activities while driving, but significantly less has been discussed about the safety benefits that mobile technology provides in a wide variety of environments. Even less is known – including inside the mobile technology industry – about the ever-increasing opportunities this repaidly evolving technology is providing to increase safety in ways you may not think about – YET.   

To help southeast Michigan gain an understanding of the substantial capabilities mobile technology provides to increase personal, family and business safety, Mobile Monday Detroit will be focusing its September 12th meeting on ‘Safety-related Mobile Technology’.

Liedel’s presentation will provide the opportunity to see the OnStar FMV unit first-hand and ask questions about its capabilities.
