Guardian Mode – notifies vehicle owners/parents based on specific customizable driving behavior triggers, such as speeding, erratic driving, and GPS boundaries, to keep you alerted when your vehicle is left with a valet, mechanic or family member.Push to Talk – allows you to speak directly with occupants in the vehicle or alert intruders to your presence.Roadwatch AI – uses the powerful Computer Vision (CV) chipset and high-grade cameras to run AI software on edge, that tracks the speeds and trajectories of other vehicles around you, as well as pedestrians, cyclists and e-scooters.Encrypted Incident Reports – in partnership with T-Mobile IoT, real time footage and reports can be shared with authorities or insurance companies following any incident to protect drivers and their vehicles.
