Idea details
Long range lights
At night, on many roads is necessary to use long range lights to see correctly.

But these lights have a problem. When riding in a two-way road, cars coming the other way may be disturbed and even cause an accident.
This application would take care of automatically detecting the presence of cars (enough with a night view camera and a scanning software) and then lowering the light intensity until we're alone on the road again.

It would be a very useful application for drivers who carry these lights for long periods and end up forgetting that they are on :)

Good idea pyros! But BMW has the same function called high beam assist. But in an app you can set it to suit you. I like it User2837

Thanks Pyros, I like your ideas too, especially the immediate medical one, that would be very handy User3237
Hello pyros, Thanks for your feedback.^^ It is very difficult to find some bugs or improvements. In my opinion, your Historical-GPS-App is very useful and interesting. I like history, but I never have the history book when I need it:-D See you later stealth User3193
Welcome back pyros! Good to have you on board again! :) User2776

Hey thanks for comments .. User3186
yeah! Those are some good's ideas! Good ridance! User3198
That is a nice idea. It could also tell if you are in fact moving towards the target or away from it by keeping track on the distance. User3104
I'll let you know when/if VW provides this proxy. For now I've set up one on my web-server, so it is working... And this would apparently kill all the cross-domain problems as it turns out... User2842
Hello. Thank you for your feedback regarding Foursquare Tips. I agree with you on that there should be some sort of push feature in the cars own navigation system that apps could use for guiding a driver. There is no point for everyone to do their own navigation systems for their apps. I didn't quite get what exactly you did with your last app that I could also implement in mine? User3104
I wanted to refine a little more my app's, but seeing that the ideas go too fast (two applications have already left I had in mind! :)) I am obliged to publish my beta version ... with all of you my new app: "Also you can go..." :) User2830
not happening. I don't get to start the Alcoholimeter. will my computer? User3067
- VW guard v.4.0 is ready!! :) User2830
Now your app is perfect....the real values and the phone contacts....perfect...congratulations.... User2852
2nd version of alcoholimeter app!! :) User2830
Hi pyros! I think my fuel station app should work now. Could you please test it? Thanks! User2858
Yes, it`s a good idea. I will try it. Thanks again! User3067
o you I can make a personal question? How do you get such good app? Your work is amazing. Do you think an app could be viable based on CO2 VW comunity? I fail at several points that I can not solve and for sure you are nothing. Do you dare? User3067
Hi pyros, yhank for your comment (in CO2 sensor)! It´s make me think about the best version. We could make CO2 VW comunity, constantly exchanging data between us, on a central database, updating at the time levels, and exclusive to VW comunity. Yes,a great idea! User3067
Hi pyros. Thanks for your comment! didn't know Navman GPS before, but if there is a similar service then my idea was quite good ;-) User2858
It's true, but you can remember where is your car but not how many are you drunk, because yours friends help (In all the things, to drink and to find yor car). You will put a botom like this: 'beers: not remeber' 'other: not remember'---- solution: take a taxi. hahahah ;) nice to meet you! User3067
Thank you pyros, I´m working hard to think in more ideas. User3067
thank u pyros your ideas are so nice User3047
Hi pyros, that rules. The Guard v3 is getting better and better. Since you have implemented to apps responding on the driving behavior: What about having an avatar/icon/tamagochi (smiley, something abstract, or even your guard) responding on the driving behavior by changing his design/appearance (e.g lateral acceleration moves the avatar to the left or right border of the app). User2838
you are allowed to implement all of the ideas in the idea-pool. but it would be nice, if you would ask the person who came up with the idea first. so you have lots of possibilities :) User2776
I am not going to implement it, but if you want to do it, feel free! :) User2776
Pyros thank you very much for your comments. User3007
Hi pyros, nice update! Thats the right way. Design is one of the relevant topics for the jury, so keep on improving ... Btw you could do a second version of the app playing in the frame we provided. Then you could use the background as design element. Or (even better) you could do both in the same app. So the user can configure having a transparent background or not. User2838
I've updated my app "The VW agent" please check and comment your opinions!! :) User2830
hey pyros, thanks for your compliment! User2935
Your colors are great. But you won't see any "red" untill we provide a driving profile with "bad" behaviour! :) User2777
hello Pyros, nice ideas, you have:) User2852
don't know - i just had the same troubles. if it appears again - i'll talk to the coder guy! thx for the hint User2776
and yes, again. You people at VW should start thinking about a centralized communication server :-). Like I also mentioned with my "security issues". Possibilities are endless .... User2853
hi to you too . Nice to be here User2885
Hey hello pyros. User2885
wow sounds like you are pretty busy. as i am working for the company who set up this competition, i am not allowed to contribute ;-) anyways, I hope you find time to submit your app - you could go for the student prize! User2776
I am really excited what those creative people out there will come up with! You can use the CAN data streams, but you are also very welcome to exclude these date from your coding and provide completely innovative new ideas, services for apps :) what are you planing - app or ideas? cheers! User2776
Welcome pyros! Enjoy the competition! Hope you show us some cool Ideas or some nice Apps! User2776
