    Hey Aaron, thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    I absolutely agree with you on the hazards of using app for directions while driving. If you look at the conclusion I have mentioned some of the ideas I would definitely like to explore.

    Regarding this case study, I don't know if you have been to south east asia, but people here use 2 wheelers more than cars. And one of the hacks people use is mounted mobile stand on the dashboard of motorbikes. I tried to visualize it in the storyboard.

    For your suggestion on AR, I feel there are some case studies on that, but I feel it will more of a distraction than assistance.

      Yeah, funnily enough I was just stepping out of 1Utama (in KL) the week before last (I visit SE Asia a fair bit), and I watched a guy get mowed down by a proton while he was doing a delivery. He was using an arm band with his phone attached to it but was still pretty distracted. Though I see some pretty appalling driving in general when I'm visiting there :P

      I'm actively involved in motorsports and take driver education pretty seriously, thats why I brought it up... Your project was a good read otherwise :)

        Haha, then you will find driving in India amusing. I myself own a motorbike and definitely feel the shortcomings and the disadvantages. On top of putting on earphones inside helmet, I have to make regular stops if I am in a new neighbourhood. You should look up https://www.atherenergy.com/, its the answer to Tesla for SE Asia roads. Integrating maps to the vehicles just might be the answer.

        I am glad you put front your concerns. Cheers.
