Just stick it on windscreen and you're good to go. it adds collisions warnings, driver skills assessment and lane change assistance to your current automobile.
The device includes a 720p camera, accelerometers, a speaker, microphone and Wi-Fi unit to connect to your smartphone.

While it is doing this, it builds a report on your driving, recording hard braking, jolting starts, and other things, to give you a “SKOR”, along with tips on how to improve your driving.
