Our Customers

About Us 3 The target market is all drivers who wish to become safe, alert and avoid costly tickets. Our traffic camera feed is also a must have for any driver that hates traffic jams and gridlock. It literally lets you see what traffic looks like in real time helping you avoid unnecessary delays and also plan faster routes. The US and Canada currently comprise more than 200 million motorists, of which there are 40 million GPS-device owners intersecting with some 80 million GPS-enabled smartphone owners. Since PhantomALERT’ s products run on PNDs, in-dash navigation systems, and smartphones, the total available market is the superset of those three markets- currently an estimated 110 million devices, and projected to grow an average of 35% annually to more than 350 million devices, as shown below.

Cutting Edge Technology

About Us 4 PhantomALERT’s main asset is its high-quality, proprietary database of enforcement and road-hazard locations, as well as live traffic camera feeds. A unique characteristic of the database is that it is constantly being improved through crowdsourcing user-generated data—hundreds of POIs are added and verified daily by the community of PhantomALERT customers as they encounter speed traps, speed cameras, red-light cameras, and other enforcement locations. To capture user inputs, the company has created an easy-to-use POI reporting/verification tool on its website. Utilizing Google Maps and proprietary software, the system enables drivers from all over the world to report and verify traffic enforcement and road-safety locations and immediately download the information into compatible devices. Additionally, PhantomALERT has acquired the names and contact information of public relation officers for 4000 Police Departments. The company plans to enlist the support and participation of Police officers to contribute to the PhantomALERT’s database. Police will be encouraged to use PhantomALERT as a tool to share and alert the driving public of dangerous roads, curves, intersections and also areas where they plan to set up speed traps and DUI check points. PhantomALERT is confident Police departments will actively participate as several have already endorsed the service, see it as a safety tool and a force multiplier. Moreover, this partnership will be good PR for police departments as they can now claim they do not set up speed traps to generate revenue and they actively publicize enforcement zones through PhantomALERT giving the driving public a fair warning to obey traffic rules. A safety and enforcement database created by drivers and Police will be the most accurate, credible and sought after data on the market that millions of drivers will subscribe to and LBS companies willing to pay premium licensing fees. In other technology areas, PhantomALERT has several projects in development. These include smart-learning and augmented-reality traffic- camera views, location-based ad/coupon serving, and other technologies that take advantage of smartphones’ motion-detection and directional capabilities. Additionally, PhantomALERT is developing a Google-Map–based tool for collecting and verifying live traffic camera views, IP-passed security camera feeds, and web cameras. Just as with our traffic-safety POI reporting tool, by utilizing our crowdsourcing techniques, millions of individuals will be mobilized to geo- tag any camera in the world creating the most comprehensive database of live traffic traffic/IP-based cameras and web cams. The company expects to file up to four provisional patents within the next few months.
