A new look for Nexar

A new look for Nexar

Nexar was founded on a mission to create a safe-driving network that lets you see everything coming on the road ahead. When you pair a Nexar-powered dash camera with our app, you join this network, which uses artificial intelligence to spot upcoming hazards and alert those in the surrounding area.

Cars, safety, and cameras

A bridge to our autonomous driving futureWe’ve talked in previous posts about the challenges autonomous vehicles (AVs) could bring or worsen — traffic, time to market, and ridesharing. However, they’re without a doubt going to make us safer as well. No more car collisions, falling asleep at the wheel,
