With over one-hundred thousand car accidents globally every day, it’s only a matter of time before it’s your turn.
Most likely, it won’t be your fault, but rather a hit-and-run, uninsured motorist or some other situation where you might wish for a witness to protect you.
The automotive Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is a combination of technologies for monitoring your car’s environment and everything it does. It records video and audio, location, date, time, speed, brake application, road conditions, etc.
This information can be used to apportion liability in the event of an accident, as evidence in court for the defense or prosecution, or as a monitor to correct the driver’s behavior.
The automotive DVR market is young and rapidly growing throughout many countries. The largest sale volumes are the U.S., Australia and Russia, each with several hundred thousand units sold annually. The major vendors in this segment report steady sales growth with healthy margins and an expanding customer base.
