A new in-car device has been launched over on the Indiegogo website this month called the CarVi that promises to provide technology for safer driving and is looking to raise $100,000 in funding with 40 days remaining on the campaign.
CarVi has been designed to enable drivers to adds an extra set of “eyes” to their car, that is capable of monitoring your position in the lane and the location of the car ahead. Check out the video below to learn more.
“CarVi employs the vision based safety tools to gather data, using a small dashboard camera installed in your car that “talks” to your smart phone. The camera captures video which CarVi analyzes in real time. If it senses potential trouble, it issues audible and visual warnings.
CarVi monitors your distance from the driver in front of you. Not only will it warn you if you come too close, but it will also help you practice maintaining a safe distance if you’re prone to tailgating.
You may not even notice certain driving habits once you get used to them. CarVi helps you learn to give your car just enough gas to efficiently ease into the flow of traffic.
But CarVi doesn’t stop working when you turn off your engine. The smartphone interface displays your driving data, providing your driving “SKOR” for the day, and showing you the areas where you did well, and where you might need some work. With the data it collects, CarVi gives you suggestions on how to improve your driving skills.”
The CarVi project is currently over on the Indiegogo crowd funding website looking to raise $100,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think CarVi is something your driving could benefit from, visit the Indiegogo website now to make a pledge and help CarVi become a reality.
