Buffalo’s own Christian Johnson wins $250K from AMC show for DriverWatchdog Invention.
This is really a good invention for "Black" period!! So because of concerns about her son getting a driver's license and high-profile incidents between African-American drivers and police officers.
She has since received support from various local entities, including the Buffalo Urban League, Launch NY, and the University at Buffalo, and built a hardware product that attaches to a rear-view mirror, with two cameras that provide a panoramic view of the vehicle interior and exterior. There are sensors to pick up on a driver's fatigue and a speaker for emergency contacts to talk to the driver.
The show was taped last year...and the deal was $250,000 for 49 percent of the company and an open line of credit to help DriverWatchdog penetrate the market.
