Who we are
Katasi is a Colorado-based technology company founded by executives from the telecom and aerospace industries to address a critical societal need; providing an effective technological solution to the growing epidemic of texting while driving.  We believe this problem will only be effectively controlled through an elegant coordinated technological solution that works well for all stakeholders; cell phone users, carriers, insurance companies and legislators.

The Katasi approach, two years in development, is unique.  Katasi;

  • Creates a “text-free” vehicle
  • Works with existing mobile phones
  • Works with existing carrier systems
  • Does not require additional software on the mobile phone
  • Discriminates between drivers and passengers
  • Positively prevents texting from a given mobile phone in a given vehicle
  • Is inexpensive and easy to retrofit
Katasi has overcome limitations of competing systems that can be disabled by the user and are only applicable to a limited set of phones and software.
