A new Apple Crash Detection System is a feature that seems to have gone unnoticed. They introduced them on Wednesday at Apple’s “Far Out” event. The much-discussed emergency satellite services are also among the features of the iPhone 14 series.
New hardware upgrades include a high dynamic range (HDR) gyroscope. Also it consists of a new high g-force accelerometer. These are noted as being included in every model of the iPhone 14 series. Apple claims that to make this new function as precise as possible. It analysed real-world driving data and collision data from the public domain.
What does the Apple Crash Detection System do?
The new high g-force accelerometer is installed in the new Apple iPhone 14 series. These features will be in Apple iPhone 14, Apple iPhone 14 Plus, Apple iPhone 14 Pro, and Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max. They all are capable of measuring accelerations and decelerations up to 256G.
The provided HDR gyroscope can detect drastic changes in a car’s orientation. The barometer in iPhone 14 series phones is also set up to recognise pressure fluctuations. The ones that might be the result of airbag activation.
How does it work?
According to Apple, the microphone on the new iPhone 14 series analyses the sound levels while driving to identify loud noises often produced by crashes. To preserve customers’ privacy, the Cupertino business has promised consumers that all sound detection processing is done on the iPhone.
Apple built sophisticated motion algorithms by undertaking head-on, rear-end, side-impact, and rollover crash tests. However, this is to ensure the Crash Detection feature functions correctly. Additionally, it made advantage of open crash data from mishaps. This function has access to more than a million hours of driving data in total.
