Smart Phone App Warns of Driving Danger

The iOnRoad app, made by the Israeli computer vision company Picitup, is intended to transform smart phones from a distraction into a lifesaving tool. The application uses a device’s built-in sensors and camera, which work when the smartphone is mounted above the dashboard. The free Android app maps objects ahead of the vehicle and calculates speeds in real time. When a collision seems likely, it warns the driver with visual and audio alerts.
