iOnRoad, an augmented driving app, uses your smartphone’s native technologies to alert you of possible collisions on the road.

One of the most important things to driving a vehicle safely is to understand the traffic itself. If a car is slowing down and you are right behind it, you will have to apply brakes before you collide with it. Similarly, you have to watch out for unwanted lane shifting, since it can result in accidents in heavy traffic.

Although these are basic things about driving, they are still the most important ones. If you can keep safe distance from other traffic and avoid frequent lane changes, you will be safe.

The invitation was extended by the Israeli Consulate of NY and Israel’s Foreign Trade Ministry. The attendees, in addition to myself, were a handful of fellow U.S. bloggers. The trip’s objective was to immerse the delegation into technology in Israel, a tech and startup scene that’s been dubbed the ‘Startup Nation,’ which is also the title of a best-selling book on the very subject.
