My phone is in my pocket or body pouch. Can this cause false Distraction events?

The short answer is no. If you pick up your phone, unlock it and press it against your t-shirt or trousers you will notice that it doesn't accidentally control the phone. In a similar way Brightmile is not falsely alerted by body contact.

We do also look at handling the phone but this looks for very specific movements that cannot be recreated whilst in a pocket or bag or even by the phone falling out of the cradle. 

We do our utmost to ensure that we never falsely register distraction.
