Purkeys has introduced the latest version of its Aware Audio Interrupter. The new Aware system automatically reads text-based messages so drivers don't have to look down at their phone to read a text. It features a powerful solid-state amplifier that strengthens its voice quality and amplitude, helping messages to be heard more clearly, even over ambient highway noise.

The Aware Audio Interrupter integrates with a vehicle’s existing speaker array and automatically silences all competing audio signals and reroutes messages from mobile phones and telematics devices through the speakers safely and effortlessly, without the driver having to turn the radio on, turn the volume down, or take his or her hands off the wheel. With the Aware system, hearing messages in real time is simple and intuitive, allowing drivers to focus on the road.

Fleets that have invested in mobile communications for dispatch automated logging applications and automatic onboard recording devices can immediately benefit from Purkeys’ new system, because it keeps their drivers informed and helps everyone comply with strict FMCSA rules. Drivers can interface with their fleet’s telematics systems and get real-time communications updates from mobile phones and tablets while they are on the move, and without having to stop and pull over to read written communications.
