If you are the kind of person who regularly runs into issues with the parking meter or forgets where you parked your vehicle, this car tracking device could be a life-saver. Currently the focus of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, the AwareCar was developed by AwareStack, Inc.

AwareCar comes with an accompanying app, which informs you where you are parked and prevents you from getting tickets. It does this, in part, by contextually opening other apps on your smartphone. This means with a simple swipe you can open related apps as you approach your vehicle or targeted item. In addition to making any car smarter, the coin-sized gadget also extends to a variety of other objects.

Reminding users to go back and top up the meter could make a huge difference for forgetful folks.
