FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THINKWARE has today been named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in the audio/video category for its new connected DASH CAM F800 Air. Products that receive this prestigious award are chosen by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade media. The award honors outstanding design qualities, aesthetic and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products as well as how the innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace.
The THINKWARE DASH CAM F800 Air is the first THINKWARE model to include Internet of Things technology, furthering the automobile industry’s goal of making the ‘connected car’ a reality. The F800 Air’s IoT connection enables drivers to feel safe behind the wheel with its ‘Emergency Alert’ system, which immediately connects to emergency contacts in the case of an accident. It also comes with a real time ‘Parking Incident Notifications’ function. Furthermore, with THINKWARE’s patented LBS (Location Based Service) technology, drivers can benefit from ‘Geo Fencing,’ an alert system for specific areas of significance along with the ‘Driving Report Service’ a feature that analyzes driving patterns of its drivers to support safe driving.
In addition to the innovative technologies featured in the dash cam, the F800 Air has been designed to achieve an attractive and modern look with a slim frame design, aluminum materials for the round camera module, and an overall ‘U’ shaped body that creates integration of the entire design.
Brian Yang, THINKWARE’s General Manager of International Business Development stated, “With these innovative ‘connected car’ technologies, the F800 Air has an important role in providing both driver convenience and safety. The continuously developing capabilities of the dash cam are boundless with IoT.”
THINKWARE’s DASH CAM F800 Air will be displayed at CES 2017, which runs January 5-8, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
