Now a sat nag system that will inform drivers against bad drivingOctober 27th, 2008 - 1:54 pm ICT by ANI
London, October 27 (ANI): A backseat driver satellite navigation system that will inform drivers when they are rushing up, or are out of lanes, is being developed.
The Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) will not only be a tour guide recommending visit-worthy restaurants, but will also direct the driver to change the gear in appropriate time to maximise fuel economy.
It will flash a warning against danger of collision or possible damage to the vehicle, too, by providing a 3-D view of the route in front, and specifying details regarding gradients, obstacles and road width.
The hi-fi navigation method is being developed by TomTom and Navteq, a mapping company owned by mobile giant Nokia, keeping in mind to create a crash-proof car.
The system is likely to hit the markets within three years, and expected to encourage safe driving. (ANI)
