Why are we designing this?
The #1 reason for rear collisions is due to distracted drivers.
Drivers are distracted by their phones, GPS, radio, and other passengers.
An illustration of what our eyes can focus on while looking at our phone.
So our goal is to alert these distracted drivers!
How do we alert them?
By using a flashing light.
The light only turns on if you come to an emergency stop.
Human eyes are great at detecting motion.
Take a second and look off the screen. Bet you can see the flashing light!
What does the device do?
It contains an accelerometer that monitors your driving.
When the microprocessor recognizes emergency braking, it automatically flashes the LEDs.
