“DailyRoads wanted to take the app and create a central streaming site, called DailyRoads LIVE, that would enable users to have up-to-the-moment information on road conditions. This would be of great use to consumers and – in particular – road users such as emergency services, Fejer says.”
“You could be told there is an accident on the route you plan to take and look it up on the computer to see how it’s cleared up before you leave,” he adds. “Emergency vehicles would be able to use it to assess problems and coordinate responses long before they got there.”

“Essentially, what this free Android app does is continuously record video of the road ahead using your phone’s camera while also tracking vehicle speed, location, and G-forces using the onboard GPS receiver and accelerometer. In the event of a fender bender, a quick tap of the screen can save a clip of the moments preceding the accident. Clip length varies from 30 to 60 seconds, depending on where in the caching loop you trigger the save. DailyRoads Voyager can also be set to automatically save a clip if the accelerometer registers a hard enough impact, so even if you’re incapacitated or forget to tap the screen, you’ll be covered.”

”If you want to relive a car journey complete with details such as speed, time and location, you usually need an expensive black box recorder. But drivers who have a mobile with the Android operating system can now do it for free.
The Daily Roads Voyager app uses your smartphone’s camera and built-in GPS sensor to record your driving using a mixture of video and photo. The idea is that if you see a car you like on the road, you can record it and share it.
However, if you’re involved in an accident, you can use the video evidence and data – such as your speed and GPS co-ordinates – for legal purposes.”
