Behavioral Safety via SmartPhone

An extra eye on the road: It's rare that an Android app exclusive could make iPhone users jealous, but the iOnRoad augmented driving safety app is one of them. Mount an Android smartphone running the app on to the windshield and it uses the phone's camera to provide an extra eye on the road. It monitors traffic, measuring relative speeds between your car and the car in front, reporting all information onscreen. It also provides an advanced collision warning system, monitoring if the car ahead is perilously close. It also features a launch screen for other apps, making the phone easier to control in-commute. The app even dips a toe in the world of behaviour modification, issuing "safety points" to drivers operating at safe speeds and at safe headway distance from the car ahead. more
