Mobileye 560

Many vehicles are rolling off the factory floor with safety features that warn drivers of forward collisions, unanticipated lane departures and potential collisions with cyclists or pedestrians.

Check under the hood of cars with the collision avoidance systems and you'll find Mobileye technology supplied by Magna Electronics or Delphi. But you don't need to buy a new car to have the technology.

The dashboard-mounted Mobileye 560, an after-market product, uses a camera mounted behind the rear-view mirror and is either linked via Bluetooth to a smartphone or a small display unit. That third eye keeps its eye on the road even when you don't.

If the Mobileye 560 senses problems, an audible and visual warning alerts you to hopefully react properly. It does not have blind-spot detection.

The gadget has many other features and you can decide which ones are necessary. If you tend to not notice traffic signs, the speed-limit indicator might be a feature you leave engaged. That in itself may help justify the cost.
