Car DVRs, also known as car black boxes and dashboard cameras, are an aftermarket car accessory designed to deal with the unpredictability of other drivers on the road and drivers’ misinterpretation of traffic rules. By recording live streams from the front and rear of the vehicle, car DVRs provide information to insurance companies, the legal system and others in the event of an accident.
The latest DaVinci video processors from Texas Instruments enable car DVRs with two-channel, full HD (1080p) video captures in real-time (30fps). The processors integrate high-end features such as H264 encode, SD card storage, GPS/3-axis G-shock sensor and easy-to-up backup and PC software.
