We develop software to protect you and your business against car crashes and road casualties.
We do it by using computer-vision AI and inter-vehicle networking (V2V).
Join us in making the road safer, for everyone, starting today.
Nexar is on a mission to rid the world of car crashes. Using off-the-shelf smartphones and dash-cams, Nexar has created the world’s first and largest safe driving network.
