Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETECTING MOBILE DEVICE MOVEMENT WITHIN A VEHICLE USING ACCELEROMETER DATA
Abstract:
One or more mobile device movement detection computing devices and methods are disclosed herein based on acceleration data collected from an accelerometer of a mobile device found within an interior of a vehicle. The mobile device movement detection computing devices may identify a likely mobile device movement event based on a change of angle between two three-dimensional acceleration vectors. Where the mobile device movement detection computing devices detect a likely mobile device movement event, sensor data from various sensors of a mobile device are collected and aggregated for a window of time encompassing the mobile device movement event. Data from vehicle sensors and other external systems may also be used. The mobile device movement detection computing devices calculate a risk score based on the aggregates sensor data, and provide feedback to a mobile device or vehicle based on the calculated risk score.
