We have all used Google maps or other navigation systems on our phone while driving. Augmented by cost effective mounting devices the experience has become hands free and pleasurable. However, the element of pleasure is not risk free, as the vision is impaired if the phone is mounted directly in front of the driver. Alternatively, users mount it in odd places to prevent hindrance in the line of sight, but seldom does one take into account lag in awareness caused due to constant change in focus, which may result in accidents.
Description of the Technology
The application works by utilizing the primary camera of a system such as phone or tab and projects the image on to the screen in real time. The application may be used simultaneously with other applications such as Google maps&other navigational applications, therefore a transparent field of navigation is provided, thereby allowing a driver to mount it in the line of sight and avoid accidents.
Uses and Advantages
None of the apps present in the market that makes the phone transparent and compatible with other apps such as Google Maps, therefore their use and purpose is severely restricted.
Presently there is specialized hardware or devices that work as transparent heads-up display operated via physical connection or other remote connection to the phones. However, the hardware’s cost is around INR 18, 000 with no reputed brand available in the market.
We provide an app that is compatible with both IOS and Android software, whereas all the apps in the market are either IOS or Android specific.

India’s app market is engaged but fickle-Business Insider.
India’s app users are highly engaged. On average, nine of the 33 apps installed on Indian users’ devices are being used on a daily basis. While that seems low, compared with other, more mature, Asian smartphone markets, it’s substantial. For example, the average smartphone user in Japan engages with just 17% of all apps installed on their phone.
