I developed an iPhone App that does exactly this but in a less distracting and more humorous way. It's called DrivingBuddy and it uses the accelerometer to analyze and respond to poor driving habits. It's on the App store and you can check out more here: drivingbuddyapp.com

oh, the equipment of reminding driver to fill the empty tire and monitoring the tire pressure is coming into way. But avoid traffic jam seems impossible by this robot. Today most of car equipped with GPS, but can't do the job. unless the car can fly as a bird. You can easily find so many such equipments work in the new car at vehicle exhibition. what data bus will they adopt?

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Interesting, marginally. Usefulness -- zip. I guess V-dub likes keeping the creative juices flowing. We are subrogating more and more of ourselves to the machines. Eventually, we'll all be dumb enough to do nothing.

Interesting idea. But what about using a GPS device and some common sense when driving instead?

The problem here may be the same as was encountered in Windows XP and, worse, in Vista: The computer keeps interrupting with pointless comments, warnings, or update notices. I would be a bit worried that, just as a computer user wants to operate the computer and not have it talk back, a driver will want to operate the car in peace and not have it communicating with him or her. To mitigate aggravation, any such device should not use audio communication. But, distracted driving can cause accidents, whether the distraction is a warning of a hazard or not. MIT might incur considerable liability here.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
