CarDroid – First Android Vehicle Monitoring Device
Today UonMap, company providing software monitoring services around the globe, is entering hardware market. The company has just launched a Kickstarter project with their CarDroid. CarDroid is a vehicle monitoring device running Android OS.
“Life is a chain of random events and sooner or later you realize that you can not control every single thing in it. Nowadays a lot of accidents happen on the road and we think that if we can not prevent these accidents, we should at least find a way to be aware of it in case something bad happens to the people we love. That’s why we created CarDroid. ” Said UonMap.
CarDroid allows its users to make sure their loved ones drive safe. In case there is a car accident the device immediately notifies its user allowing him to help his loved ones right away.
With CarDroid you can not only get a notification in case of a car accident but also see a 3D model of a car’s motion path during the accident in your online account. With the help of this 3D model you can reconstruct the situation and analyze driver’s actions at the moment of accident. The two main functions are combined under a single title – ESNaR – Emergency Situation Notification and Reconstruction.
Apart from helping you to take care about your dear ones, CarDroid also suits for personal use. There are numerous features which allow to monitor your own vehicle, such as notification in case a car is hit while parked or is being towed away, driver’s behavior analysis, remote on-board diagnostics, trouble codes reading, car location tracking, and many more.
Here’s a short list of CarDroid’s features:
- Car accident notification
- 3D car accident reconstruction

For the best user experience UonMap offers free mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
