Also in 2006, the company short-listed as one of the top 200 contenders for the "Red Herring 100 North America" list. DriveCam Solution DriveCam is the only company that focuses on improving risky driving behavior by predicting and preventing crashes. DriveCam's exception-based video event recorder is mounted on the windshield behind the rear-view mirror and captures sights and sounds inside and outside the vehicle. Exceptional forces (e.g. hard braking, swerving, collision, etc.) cause the recorder to save the critical seconds before and after the triggered event. Saved events are downloaded, analyzed and assigned a risk score to coach drivers and improve driving behavior and assess liability in collisions.
