Smartphones sensors enable telematics solutions

Submitted by Shreyas B (@shreyasb) on Friday, 9 August 2013

Section: Systems Technical level: Beginner


To highlight how sensors available in commercial smartphones can be leveraged for applications in telematics and related areas, and give an interesting demo of a prototype developed for insurance industry


Commercial smartphones, (including mid-range devices) have several sensors such as GPS, compass, gyroscope, accelerometer, etc. These can be effectively leveraged to detect and derive valuable information in various contexts. The presentation will describe the experience with using smart phone sensors for business purposes. The usage of this data will be exemplified with an insurance industry use case.

    Here’s the plan -
    Highlight the various sensors available in commercial smartphones and how some of these can be used to derive some patterns in a context of Driving
    Demonstrate the applicability of the above for Auto Insurance industry using a basic Android device (via a short video recording of the solution prototype)
    Conclude with a list of possible extensions across other application areas and the M2M paradigm.
