Here’s an app that is crossing new lines using augmented reality in real time with the road your driving on. The app watches the car in front of you and gives an estimated buffer time in seconds and warns if you’re too close to the vehicle in front of you. I was especially amused at its ability to watch for speed limit signs and post that sign reminder on my screen.
App Publisher Description: iOnRoad improves driving in real time using the power of advanced smartphones. The app uses the smartphone’s native camera, GPS and sensors to detect vehicles in front of the host vehicle, alerting drivers when they are in danger. Our Visual Radar maps objects in front of the driver in real-time, calculating the driver’s current speed using native sensors. As the vehicle approaches danger, an audio-visual warning pops up to alert of a possible collision, allowing the driver to brake in time.

Tim’s App Rating: 6 of 10 Clicks. Points for augmented reality use but is more of an amusing novelty at this time.
