- Nick Tatt, Founder of Map My Tracks - a tool that enables you to track, analyse and share outdoor activities - will be talking about: A brief history of GPS in smart phones
Lisette Slegers from Serious Racing - a responsive web app that allows car and bike racers to compare GPS laptimes, and track progress - will be presenting the talk: Socialising motorsport with GPS
- Now hearing a quick 'pitch' from Noel of Transformed by you
Socialising Motorsport with GPS
- Needs data at 10 Hz (10 readings per second) to make it interesting given the speed. Accuracy of 1-15 cm
- As well as 'socialisng' motorsport - can also be used to monitor vehicle performance - comparison between petrol and electric vehicles. It's better suited to a lap situation - repeating a lap for example.
- Q - how do you get the data? We use the data that a bike or car is already collecting - there's lots of smartphone apps that can do this.
- Q - what's your business model? Haven't got one at the moment - we are exploring the applications. We have some ideas re monitisation.
- Q - can you use this to learn about what goes wrong - and to improve safety. We rely on data that people upload - so there are limitations to what we can do.
Quick pitch - Interactive Me
- Creating bespoke tablet-based interactive life histories for people with dementia.
- Sam Dondi-Smith talks about the fact that by 2025 1 million people will be affected by dementia.
- He's looking at digital life histories - specific to that person. Here's a look at the prototype
- This reminded me of Janis Jefferies' project - Wearable Absences:
