Thinkware win prestigious CES innovation award
Set to be a highlight of the world-renowned CES (Consumer Electronics Show), is the award winning Thinkware Dash Cam. Earlier this month, the Dash Cam 5800 Air received the 2017 Innovation Award in the car audio/video category at the show, making it the second consecutive year that Thinkware has received the prestigious CES innovation award.
The Thinkware Dash Cam F800 Air is the first model to feature a design compatible with IOT (Internet of things) technology for the realisation of a completely ‘Connected Car’. The F800 Air model’s IOT connection gives drivers complete peace of mind with the ‘Emergency Alert’ feature. It sends location and status information via text message to your pre-selected emergency contacts when the system detects a crash, rollover or the SOS button is activated. It also has the ‘Parking Incident Notifications’ function, which, in real time, sends alerts if your vehicle is hit while parked, even subtle impacts such as door dings or a door closing.
Furthermore, with Thinkware’s patented LBS (Location Base Service) technology, all drivers will soon benefit from ‘Geo Fencing’, an alert system which informs you if your vehicle enters or leaves a designated area along with the ‘Driving Report Service’ a feature that analyses driving patterns of its drivers to support safe driving.
The F800 Air’s breakthrough innovations and bold designs certainly helped it achieve the CES 2017 innovation award. The dash cam is currently in its final stage of development and is scheduled for a global launch next year.
Thinkware stated: “With the innovative ‘connected car’ technologies, the dash cam will take on an important role in providing both driver convenience and safety and the continued evolution of the capabilities of the dash cam seem boundless with IOT.”
