Instead of capitulating to the National Transportation Safety Board recommended, iOnRoad by Picitup wants to turn the tables and show how mobile technology can keep you safe and sound on the highways. iOnRoad uses the live camera stream and image detection to monitor for tailgating, cars slowing ahead of you, or lane drift, and sends visual and audio alerts to get you back to the proper distance, speed, and lane where you belong.

iOnRoad works with any Android device with a 1GHz processor running Froyo or better, and features a big, easy to tap interface to minimize control issues while driving. Check out the video above for our live interview from CES 2012 with Pictitup CEO, Alon Atsmon.

I think it's more like keeping an eye on the road.

I have this app and have tried to use it. However, I have T-mobile and am surrounded by edge. It needs hspa or VZW 3g possibly to really do anything. And a windshield mount with an unrestricted view, of course, which I also don't have. Damn I miss VZW...just not their prices.

However, from playing around with it it seems like a great little app.

Why an App?

iOnRoad is still a distraction.
