5 Good reasons to buy a dash cam !

A dash cam is a high-definition wide-angle camera installed in a vehicle. This camera is connected to the car by a cord that fits into the cigarette lighter. It is mounted on the dashboard or on the windscreen inside the passenger compartment. It is used to film and record everything that happens during the driver’s journey.

It is mounted on the dashboard or on the windscreen inside the passenger compartment. It is used to film and record everything that happens during the driver’s journey.


There is a positive psychological effect that drivers who have a dash cam, especially an inward facing one like naruto have a positive effect on the driver’s behaviour.

This can be explained by psychologists who say that a person who knows he or she is being observed is much more focused on what he or she is doing.

As a result, drivers make fewer inattention errors on the road and avoid risky driving behaviour.


With the stricter punishments for non-compliance with traffic regulations, more and more drivers are losing their driving licences and are less and less reluctant to drive without a licence and insurance.

As a result, the number of hit and run incidents increases in the event of a collision or accident.

The DVR dashcam camera will be a great help if you come across such a driver.

This way you will not have lost any part of the incident and you will be able to find the registration number of the offender to assert your rights with your insurer.


When fixing the accident, the amicable report can be particularly delicate when one of the two parties (often the offending party) disagrees with the accident’s outcome.

 Your video black box will then be of great use to you when establishing the report.

All you have to do is show the video recording to the other party and no observations will be possible.


Also, very useful in your absence, the dashcam will be your eyes and ears when you leave your car.

Who has never found his bumpy or scratched vehicle on the parking lot of the supermarket after filling his shopping cart?

Thanks to the DVR on-board camera, you can simply view the video to find out what happened in your absence and you can probably find the registration number of the offending vehicle.


Some insurance companies offer discounts on car insurance contracts, you can save money with your dashcam by avoiding accidents, you can then reduce your insurance.

Hardware Engineer


  1. Taking part in PCB design, validation and testing
  2. Taking part in hands-on prototyping
  3. Debugging activities
  4. Procurement of selected components and prototypes.

Required Skills

  • The engineer is comfortable with using CAD tools for multi-layer PCB layout. e.g. Altium Designer, CircuitStudio or CircuitMaker
  • Using hardware debugging and analysis tools such as oscilloscope, multimeter, signal generator, logic analyzers
  • Ability to read datasheets
  • Reading and designing electronics schematics

Optional Skills

  • Knowledge of real-time systems
  • 3D modeling skills for illustration and 3D printing
  • JTAG debugging
  • Experience with memory layout and camera
  • Experience with industrial design and enclosure design

Firmware Engineer

Developing drivers and integration software between hardware devices and the operating system. The devices include communication modules, a camera, sensors, a GNSS module and potentially external coprocessors.


  1. Developing and porting Linux device drivers, such as ISP driver and communication module drivers.
  2. Compiling a custom kernel
  3. Porting open-source device drivers
  4. Ensuring the Linux OS can communicate with devices in an optimal way

Required Skills

  • Fluent in C
  • Comfortable with Linux environment
  • Understanding of compilation process, computer architecture
  • Understanding of interfaces such as I2C, SPI, MIPI-CSI and similar
  • Ability to read datasheets

Optional Skills

  • Experience with ISP drivers
  • Experience with Gstreamer and V4L2 pipeline
  • Experience with OpenCL
  • Fluent in C++
  • Experience with ARM architecture and ARM Assembly
  • Experience with memory layout
  • Experience with camera interfaces
  • Knowledge about communication protocols and modules e.g. Bluetooth 4.x/5, LTE, WiFi

Application Engineer

Developing the DriveTrust application for the DriveTrust device. In terms of the application environment, the DriveTrust device can be compared to Raspberry Pi.


  1. Get data from sensors and processes/threads
  2. Combine the data into metrics  e.g. three strong acceleration events in two minutes = aggressive driver
  3. Send the data to cloud over the mobile network (mobile network module configuration might be required)
  4. Second Prio: working with Wifi, Bluetooth, V2X communication

Required Skills

  • Speaks English
  • Linux native
  • Proficient in Python

Optional Skills

  • C/C++
  • Android / iOS development

Computer Vision and Data Engineer

We will have a camera and would like to detect objects in real time from the video. Objects we would like to detect are cars, pedestrians and street signs. The MVP is a camera which can accurately detect street signs and traffic lights. On top of that depending on complexity we would like to have a lane departure warning system (LDWS) and a front collision warning system (FCWS)


  1. Develop / Train a neural network for detection of cars, pedestrians, traffic lights, LDWS and FCWS
  2. Optimizing the network for the constrained hardware which is used
  3. Optional: combining object detection with sensor data to improve precision, e.g. getting speed from GNSS to improve FCWS
  4. Optional: Filter Sensor Data from GNSS / accelerometer to detect certain events

Required Skills

  • Speaks English
  • OpenCV
  • Experience with object/image detection frameworks (Tensorflow, Caffe or similar)
