Acceleration Alert monitors the driving behavior of any vehicle for specific events involving periods of high acceleration. The application is intended to select events during a road trip that could be considered dangerous event. A dangerous driving event could include rapid acceleration, rapid braking or extreme corning. The magnitude and sensitivity of these dangerous driving events can be defined by the user. Once a dangerous driving event is detected, the data occurring a short period before the event and the entire event are logged to a .csv formatted file and saved to a folder on the device.
The data log can also be emailed to a Gmail account. Note that we do not collect any of the trip information, but the application can be set up to share trip information with yourself or other parties. This makes Acceleration Alert ideal for monitoring your own driving behavior or the driving behavior of many people. Acceleration Alert supports linear acceleration optimized for vehicle use on all devices. This means that the application can operate in any orientation, there is no need to "level" the device or mount the device (although the device should always be secured while in a vehicle).
Acceleration Alert graphs accelertion events in real-time allowing the user to quickly view the magnitude of dangerous events. These acceleration events are simultaneously saved to an external .CSV file that can be open in any spreadsheet application at a later time.
Acceleration Alert allows the user to define the magnitude and sensitivity of the dangerous events. The definitions can be used to look for specific events that could be considered dangerous based on the magnitude and the duration of the event.
Acceleration Alert allows you to monitor your driving behavior or the driving behavior of many vehicles at one time. This makes it ideal for monitoring fleets of drivers or performing research on many random drivers.
Acceleration Alert has the option to email detailed log files of each acceleration event from a preconfigured Gmail account to any other email account. This allows the user to easily compile aggregate data of many different drivers and vehicles.
