Driving Analytics : Will it be OBDs or Smartphones ?

  title={Driving Analytics : Will it be OBDs or Smartphones ?},
  author={Rufeng Meng},
This paper shows that smartphones are capable of estimating a car’s speed in an overwhelming majority of situations. Comparing against OBD data as ground truth, we find that continuous GPS based estimates offer greater than 98% correlation across various road, traffic, and weather conditions. Of course, GPS is energy hungry and may only be relevant for taxi or Uber-like applications where the user can plug in their phones in the car charger. For regular drivers who are not likely to plug in… 
Engaged drivers - safe drivers: Gathering real-time data from mobile and wearable devices for safe-driving apps
Regardless of punitive strategies such as fines and demerit points, drivers continue to bring their own devices into cars and use them while driving. In this chapter, we explore the opportunities for
