What is AI Dash Cam?
The iQ isn’t just a regular dash cam that records your driving. It is a smart device that uses artificial intelligence to monitor your vehicle at all times. It can detect attempted theft, driving incidents and more.
It also uses facial recognition technology to identify potential threats and alert you or authorities if necessary. Here are six features the iQ offers.

It also comes with Roadwatch AI, which is a feature that can show you the speed of vehicles around you in any iQ recording, so you can prove your side of the story in the event of a dispute.
According to Nextbase, insurance companies in the United States look for data to determine the fault, which is why the camera is equipped with sensors, GPS and cloud storage.
2. Protect your car from theft and theft
When your car is parked, the iQ switches to Smart Sense parking mode, which saves battery and puts the camera to sleep mode.
If it detects a human-sized “threat” nearby, it wakes up and starts recording. The iQ also uses AI facial recognition technology to determine whether a person is simply walking past the vehicle or is actively looking inside.
3. Ask for help when you need it most
If you have an accident and appear unresponsive, the iQ will activate emergency SOS mode and send your location to emergency services. It will also send a message to your emergency contacts and share your medical information with paramedics.
4. Help keep an eye on your car
