WreckWatch: Automatic Traffic Accident Detection and Notification with Smartphones

  title={WreckWatch: Automatic Traffic Accident Detection and Notification with Smartphones},
  author={Jules White and Chris Thompson and Hamilton A. Turner and Brian Dougherty and Douglas C. Schmidt},
Traffic accidents are one of the leading causes of fatalities in the US. An important indicator of survival rates after an accident is the time between the accident and when emergency medical personnel are dispatched to the scene. Eliminating the time between when an accident occurs and when first responders are dispatched to the scene decreases mortality rates by 6%. One approach to eliminating the delay between accident occurrence and first responder dispatch is to use in-vehicle automatic… CONTINUE READING
