Vision: A World Of Consumer-First Driver & Driving-Data Products




Company Information

We are based in Knoxville, TN and developing LaneAhead® Driver Support System and MaxSavr® Driving Data System. LaneAhead will operate to help drivers focus attention on risky driving, crash-danger, and potential-crash situations. MaxSavr will allow vehicle owners to privately view important cases of their vehicles' driving data (accidents, near-accidents, and when the driver chooses). Our customers will no longer be left in the dark about details of what the driver, vehicle, and vehicles ahead did in important driving situations. MaxSavr will provide that knowledge privately to vehicle owners, and as certified-accurate evidence to third parties upon the vehicle owner's request.

That startup was acquired by Sun Microsystems, and was part of Oracle after it acquired Sun. It was spun off as Whamcloud, then acquired by Intel, and finally by Data Direct Networks.
