Press release. Speed cameras stand no chance against FoxyTag’s robot. This robot saves drivers money by helping them tag speed cameras, which is the key to FoxyTag’s success.
Many drivers feel that the only thing speed cameras have done successfully is to reduce the number of traffic officers patrolling our roads with many decent people losing their driving licences. To prevent this from happening a computer robot helps drivers mark the location of speed cameras. FoxyTag’s robot creates links between people sharing the same opinion about a speed camera, and uses this trust network to return only pertinent information to the user. It also protects the server against spammers and people harming the system.
This robot makes FoxyTag unique. It is the only worldwide collaborative speed camera warning system that is completely self-managed. Spammers and other malevolent users are automatically excluded, and honest participants receive reliable up-to-date information thanks to the trust links created between them.
Drivers tend to brake suddenly when they see a speed camera (even if they are not speeding), which can provoke traffic jams or even accidents. Having a speed camera locator system could save lives and money.
Some people have decided that Post-it notes, Silly String, and even pickaxes were the finest way to deal with such an invasion of their private car time. FoxyTag offers a legal, free and better way of dealing with them: BoBCam. Using the FoxyTag worldwide collaborative camera database and its robot, a new free speed camera warning application offers new features. This Android application warns its users when approaching speed cameras, mobile speed cameras, average speed cameras (SPECS) and also traffic light cameras. Fixed and mobile cameras will launch an alarm 15 seconds before the critical point.
BoBCam automatically tracks the driver’s speed through a SPECS zone and displays the speed the user needs to adhere to respect the speed restrictions. The most useful feature is probably the offline mode that makes the worldwide 48’000 speed cameras available without internet. The application will automatically switch between online and offline depending on internet availability. This means BoBCam can be used abroad for no extra fee.
According to Robert Morris, a delivery driver with tight deadlines, BoBCam can make you save points on your driving licence and money: “BoBCam has already saved me a couple of hundred pounds and I have only been using it for two weeks.”
