"Black Box" for cars

A new device, invented by Fujitsu-Ten, will allow monitoring and analyzing the driving behaviour that can cause accidents. The device, connected to 2 cameras and microphones, is powered by the lighter plug and is equipped with a sensor that manages the recording of all suspicious activity.

It stores in memory only the sounds and images captured inside and outside the vehicle in case of sudden acceleration, braking or other abnormal driving situations. The data, stored in a memory card, can then be further analyzed in a computador using a specific software.
