WatchOut is an innovative new driving companion designed to help you drive safer.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
More than 2,000,000 people are injured in crashes in the United States each year. Crashes may feel random, but they aren't. They occur in predictable locations for predictable reasons. Using machine learning we analyzed more than 30,000,000 police accident reports to find hotspots where crashes are most likely to occur. We combine this with real-time traffic, weather, and vehicle telemetry to create a proactive safety system that alerts you to hazards ahead.
- Explore the map to learn where crashes are most likely to occur
- Start a trip to get in-vehicle voice alerts as you approach hotspots
- See why crashes occur at each hotspot
- Slowing traffic
- Sharp curves
- Children crossing
- Traffic islands
- Low bridges
- Parking cars
and many more...
- Live traffic data is used to customize alerts based on current traffic conditions
