The Avertu App

Many incidents on the road occur because drivers are unfamiliar with dangerous locations, and because of a lack of attention while driving

Our app helps users to drive safer and remain focused with simple in-vehicle warnings, extending navigation apps like Google Maps and Waze

The Avertu Approach

Our project combines traffic accident and crowd sourced driving data to help prevent incidents at dangerous locations

Based on how and where you drive, we identify emerging hazardous locations and provide new warnings
