Nexar takes on Google Street View with Live Map

By on 29 July, 2019

Nexar Live Map includes the option to filter for time and date.

Nexar has launched a free, online, interactive digital map made of what it claims are billions of real-time images and metadata from dash cameras in the Nexar network.

Nexar says the mission behind its new Nexar Live Map platform is to eliminate road collisions worldwide by alerting drivers to dangers ahead in real-time. When people pair Nexar’s smart dash cams with the Nexar app, they join a connected network of vehicles learning from each other about what’s happening on the road.

The company says that that its community of drivers is large enough, it has started rolling out these driver alerts that flag upcoming hazards before they get to them.

“Google Street View pioneered the concept that we can explore the world without getting on a plane. We are proud to innovate in this space by being the first to make it possible to explore the world in real-time using our dash camera network,” said Eran Shir, CEO and co-founder of Nexar.

Nexar is beginning with the launch of Live Map in New York City, and expanding coverage across the United States.
