Helps you drive safer

There are several carmakers today that are putting all sorts of safety gear into their vehicles. Ford is one of the firms with tech that helps the driver stay alert and in their own lane. Drivers that have cars and trucks that didn't come with that tech can now add something similar with the new Mobileye Advance Driver Assistance System that is in the Mobileye 5-series hardware.

The device appears to be a dash mount system that works with the smartphone you already have to give the driver visual alerts for critical things on the road. The system has lane departure warnings to keep you from veering into other lanes. It also has forward collision warning that alerts the drive up to 2.7 seconds before an accident.

Other features include headway monitor and warning to remind the driver to keep a safe distance and the device has a pedestrian collision warning system. The 5-series also has a method of controlling the high bema lights on the car and a traffic sign recognition system to keep the driver from speeding. The 5-series range from $749 to $849 and are available now.
