iOnRoad Steers iPhone® Navigation Towards Safer Driving
TEL AVIV, Israel --(Business Wire)--
the maker of the iOnRoad app that improves driving in real-time using
the power of modern computer vision algorithms and smart-phone cameras,
announces today the release of its award-winning app on iOS 6 operating
systems. iOnRoad now available for immediate download in the App StoreSM,
is taking advantage of the leap in processing power of the iPhone (News - Alert)®
5 and new navigation integration offered on iOS 6.
Black-box Video Recording
iOnRoad's new iOS 6 features bring about a whole new depth to driving
assistance applications. The iOnRoad application's advanced fusion with
iOS 6 navigation allows the driver the benefit of turn-by-turn
navigation along with iOnRoad's augmented driving UI. Furthermore,
iOnRoad's new "Black-box" like video recording feature acts as a virtual
driving log, archiving users' driving history. Should an accident occur,
drivers may now be given a greater understanding of the events leading
up to it.
Safer, Greener Driving
"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
addition, the new inphone 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."
From F-15's to Cars
iOnRoad uses the iPhone camera and sensors to detect lanes and vehicles
in front of the vehicle, alerting drivers when they are in danger. 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 (News - Alert) 2012 showcase award, and one of Gartner's 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 StoreSM for a special new-year price of $1.99. To
