Now you can use your iPhone (News - Alert) as your personal driving assistant. Israel based iOnRoad has announced the release of its iOnRoad – a smartphone app that improves driving in real-time using the power of modern computer vision algorithms and smartphone cameras, for iOS 6.
iOS 6 version of iOnRoad provides a variety of driving assistance applications. The iOnRoad leverages advanced navigation features of iOS 6 operating systems to allow the driver the benefit of turn-by-turn navigation, collision warning and iOnRoad’s augmented driving UI. iOnRoad’s new “Black-box” like video recording captures and archives the complete history of the driver. In the event of an accident, drivers and investigating agencies may be given a greater understanding of what led to the accident.
“We have serviced hundreds of thousands of mobile users over the past year and are excited to provide iPhone users an enhanced version of iOnRoad,” said Alon Atsmon, CEO of iOnRoad, in a statement. “In addition, the new in-phone analytics dashboard tells a driver how safe and 'green' the drive was and can even estimate gas prices, which is quite useful given the fluctuation in gas prices today.”
Using the iPhone camera and sensors, iOnRoad can detect lanes and vehicles in front of the vehicle, alerting drivers when they are in close range. The app provides a range of personal driving assistance functions including augmented driving, collision warning, speeding alert and safety scoring.
“We are witnessing a trend in which systems and features that we used to find in jet-planes such as navigation, collision warnings, HUD and night vision are increasingly finding their way into the driving environment,” says Atsmon. iOnRoad’s innovation and market leadership has been validated by numerous industry awards including the 2012 CTIA E-Tech Award, CES 2012 showcase award, and one of Gartner’s (News - Alert) cool vendors in automotive for 2012.
The iOS 6 version of iOnRoad is compatible with the iPhone 5 and other iOS 6 devices and is available for immediate download from the App Store for a special new-year price of $1.99.
