The pioneering Nextbase iQ completely re-imagines connected-car technology, raising the bar on driver safety, driver assistance and vehicle security
Nextbase, the global leader in Dash Cam technology, today announced the world’s first truly smart and fully connected Dash Cam, the Nextbase iQ. Designed to fast-track next-generation connected-car technology, the Nextbase iQ transforms the driver experience, making any vehicle smarter, safer and more secure. Leveraging the very latest AI-powered technology and offering real-time access from anywhere at any time through the iQ app, Nextbase is transcending the Dash Cam category with the introduction of this groundbreaking smart product.
Nextbase iQ delivers all the safety and security that consumers expect from the best smart home-monitoring systems, but now in the car. Drivers will be able to receive real-time alerts and access incident video even when they are away from their vehicle, plus a whole lot more.
“There is nothing on the market that rises to the level of Nextbase iQ,” said Richard Browning, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer for Nextbase. “Over two years and from the ground up, we have re-imagined what a Dash Cam can be and created the world’s first true Smart Dash Cam, utilising AI-technology and Cloud-connectivity to give drivers a complete sense of safety and security.
“Never before has there been a smart connected-car product that offers so much benefit in one package. We have bettered our already best-in-class Dash Cam functionality and added never-before-seen technology to support drivers, whether they are on the road or away from their vehicle.
“We’re looking forward to bringing this exciting, innovative and forward-thinking product to Australia and New Zealand. Having officially entered this market in September 2020, we have grown in tandem with the road user community – conducting research into what they truly care about while on the road, and where our product fits in to help them feel safe, trusted and secure. 45 percent of Aussie’s believe Dash Cams should be mandatory in road vehicles and one in four change their driving behaviour when they know a Dash Cam is recording them. Nextbase is committed to continue growing with the Australian and New Zealand market, being their guardian on the road, and offering the best-in-class products so all road users feel protected and safe,” said Mr. Browning.
As technological advancements continue to outpace OEM vehicle development cycles, Nextbase is delivering next-level driver safety, driver assistance and vehicle-security technology – including unparalleled dash cam functionality – not available in the vast majority of vehicles around the world. Nextbase iQ ensures every driver and every car can be made smarter, safer, and more secure.
Fully integrated into Nextbase iQ is the world’s best 4K, three-camera video technology, able to record outside and inside the vehicle with real-time global access and alerts. The Nextbase iQ has a completely new product design, informed by extensive research and development to capture the best image quality and vehicle security views in the industry.
And, in response to increasing on-road incidents (e.g., road rage, traffic stops) and driver anxiety, Nextbase iQ offers Witness Mode, a voice-activated, instant-on recording feature that automatically saves to the cloud and shares with an emergency contact or other designated third party (e.g., spouse, parent) in real-time, ensuring you never face a stressful situation on the road alone.
