BikerSOS uses the sensors from your mobile phone. As soon as your speed is below 10km/h, the sensor data is checked for suspicious situations. The sensor data are the acceleration data of the mobile phone (shaking), the rotation data of the mobile phone (turning) and the GPS signal (speed). If our developed algorithm detects a suspicious situation, the alarm is started.
If the alarm is not aborted, depending on your settings, a message is sent to your emergency contacts and the emergency call centre is informed. Your contacts and/or the emergency call centre will then try to contact you. If you do not pick up the phone, an ambulance will be sent to your location.
The alarm can be cancelled by:
1. automatically by driving on
2. manually ("Cancel" button on the display or press + or - button twice)
After the countdown has elapsed (you can choose the time yourself) the alarm can no longer be cancelled automatically. Now only you as user or your emergency contact can press the button to cancel.
