CarVi, An Affordable Versatile Driver’s Assistant, Offers Connected Car Features To Everyone

CarVi is launching a crowdfunding campaign on to bring to market real time safety gizmos currently available only in luxury cars.

The technology startup from Silicon Valley has joined the Internet of Things for an automotive movement currently dominated by global corporations like Toyota, Mercedes, Apple, and Google. It offers an affordable and easy to install gadget which can be placed in any car, old or new.

CarVi uses a small dashboard camera installed in a car that “talks” to a driver’s smartphone. The camera captures video which CarVi analyzes in real-time and issues audible and visual warnings in case of danger.

The device monitors lane changes, distance from a car in front, reckless driving, jackrabbit starts and other dangerous habits most drivers don’t even notice they have. In addition, CarVi also works as an instructor. The camera records the driving data, and shows it on a smartphone providing a “SKOR” for a day and suggestions on how to improve your driving skills. Even with this special piece of technology, there is a chance that you may still be charged for reckless driving. This could happen when traveling to a state that you’ve never been to before, like Virginia. If this is the case, you may wish to have a look at what you need to know about reckless driving before travelling.

Considering the fact that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for US teens, the parents of new drivers are one of the main target groups for the company. Currently, 1 in 5 of 16-year-old drivers have been involved in an accident within their first year of driving and every day, 29 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. Figures like these, along with more car accident statistics, indicate that there is a negative correlation involving young people and driving and that steps need to be taken to reduce the chance of crashes. Being in a car accident with someone who was at fault can be very scary to go through, you will need to take steps to file an accident claim to see how you can be helped with financial compensation for yourself, or for your car if it has become very damaged and is needing repair. If you ever get involved in a case like this then you should think about hiring a dui attorney for legal assistance.

The gizmo will bring peace of mind to anyone who wants to improve the safety on the road for themselves, their families and neighbors.

“Our parents are at higher risk of getting into a car accident due to a slower reaction and reduced vision. Our kids are increasingly distracted by smartphones and are in danger due to lack of experience. We want to protect all of them and use the power of technology to guard you on the road making driving less stressful,” said Kevin Lee, one of the founders of CarVi.

The Internet of Things was the center of attention at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and The International Auto Show in Detroit. Nowadays, major car makers spend nearly $100 billion annually on R&D. The research firm Gartner foresees 250 million new connected vehicles to hit the road by 2020. Most buyers of new cars today are looking for good safety features.

CarVi founders want ordinary people to be able to use it this year without spending tens of thousands of dollars on buying a new car they might consider some great cars from places similar to ZeMotor if they don’t have this option. The backers of the Indiegogo campaign have an opportunity to pre-order the gizmo starting from $249.
