CarVi

The CarVi, which is currently the subject of an Indiegogo crowdfunding effort, is a chunky black disc 100 mm across and 35 mm high that fits to your windscreen behind and below your rear view mirror by way of an adhesive bracket. It incorporates a 720p camera, a three-axis accelerometer, a microphone, a speaker and a Wi-Fi unit to allow it to wirelessly connect to your smartphone.

As you drive, the camera captures footage from what’s happening in front of you and analyzes it in real time to provide driver assist feedback. For example, it will sound an alert when it feels you’re driving too close to the car in front, or wandering out of your lane without indicating.
