Prevent Road Mishaps with the Nexar AI Dashcam
Nexar, a start-up company from Israel has launched their mobile application which keeps an eye on the road when you are driving and works to prevent crashes.
Using the camera, gyroscope and accelerometer of your smartphone, Nexar is a great way to tell if other vehicles are near you.
Using machine learning, Nexar interprets data and develops its intelligence over time, so that it can better detect road issues and warn drivers. This smartphone dashcam can spot and record things like sudden and severe braking. Through this it learns what sort of events can lead to accidents. This is also a great way to help sort out insurance claims where both drivers say an accident was the others’ fault. In fact over 200 claims for insurance have already been resolved with the help of Nexar.
The biggest goal of the start-up is to build a database with enough information, so that every vehicle on the road can be tracked. Drivers can then be rated according to the way they drive.
Nexar’s vehicle to vehicle network will allow cars near each other to communicate and perhaps even warn each other of possible collisions in the future. According to a study, more than 1.25 million people are killed every year due to vehicle accidents around the world. Thus it is no wonder that Nexar has even received support from the government for its ability to prevent such crashes.
As the app uses the smartphone’s camera to watch the road, it can even be turned inwards to use the front camera. This will help taxi drivers keep a track of unruly passengers.
While the Nexar app can be downloaded for free, users can purchase the specially developed windscreen mount for their mobile devices.
