iOnRoad Android App For Drivers

Written by Ardent Editor on November 11, 2011 – 11:36 am -

Safe driving and smartphone use has been known to be a bad combination. But this should not always be the case. The only danger that a smartphone can pose when driving is when drivers use it to make calls or send texts. It takes a driver’s focus away from the road, to disastrous consequences. But there is also a way to make smartphones an essential tool to help drivers on the road. That is what the iOnRoad Android app offers to drivers.

The iOnRoad Android app is a useful tool that drivers can use with their smartphones to maintain safe driving. This app works with the Android smartphone’s camera and sensors to make drivers aware whether they are driving at a safe distance from the vehicles in front of them. Consider it as a personal crash guard driving app if you will. It may require attaching your smartphone to the car dashboard in order to work.

The app is able to monitor traffic in real time, measure relative speeds and distances between your vehicle and the one in front of you. Drive too close and the iOnRoad app broadcasts urgent audio and visual warning signals via the Android phone. The app operates in the background and still allows drivers to make use of the other features of their phone.

The iOnRoad driving app for Android phones may look simple but it comes with some advanced technology that allows it to work well with augmented driving. It provides some added level of safety driving by making drivers more aware of the car right in front. The iOnRoad app is currently available in its beta version. It is available for free download at the Android Market for a selected number of compatible Android smartphones.
