App Store Description

Nity is a smartphone app that helps you drive safely in the road and helps you optimize your route. Nity can be used in all commute modes - cars, bicycle, motorcycle, walking/hiking etc. Nity can be used to estimate distance just using cell phone from about 5 feet high.

DRIVING ROUTE OPTIMIZATION - Nity tells you how much of your total travel is spent at low speed (<55 mph, 88 kph)vs high speed and how much time you spent in stop and go traffic (idle/creep), coasting (best for fuel economy) and normal drive. These are calculated continuously but visible only at idle and creep speed to make you focus on your driving.
SAFE DRIVING - Nity detects the lane and object within the lane and estimates its distance in front all using just one cell phone camera. Nity provides three types of warning to help you drive safely in the road:
1) visual - the color of the rectangle detected changes from green to red indicating smooth to aggressive driving
2) audio - please slow down - driver driving too fast compared to the car in front
3) audio - watch for traffic in the road - the distance between your car and car in front reduced suddenly

Nity uses computer vision and sensor analytics to detect object and its relative distance and works day and night, sunny, cloudy, rain and snow conditions and can be used in cars for driving safety and also in other commute mode like walking, cycling, jogging etc. Nity is NOT an autonomous driving system. So keep your eyes in the road and hands in the steering wheel.

Calibration:
Nity works best if the cell phone is mounted in the windshield as opposed to in the dash board. Adjust the cell phone such that the white lane marking area covers the road and do not face upwards towards the sky. Also ensure that the starting portion of the white lane marking area is clear from the front portion of your car (i.e does not show hood and dashboard) and only shows the road in front.
The distance measurement has been calibrated at an approximate height of the windshield which is about 5 feet from the ground. The distance measurement will have error relative to actual scale measurement but on average it has reasonable values. The maximum distance measured is 60 feet in the road.
Select your appropriate unit (US and SI) , the unit selection is visible at idle and creep speed only.
