The next form of Android Q is currently in development with regular beta liberations appearing for early adopters. The recent beta freeing has revealed an interesting brand-new feature in the form of car crash detection by your smartphone.

As XDA Developers reports, Android Q Beta 3 was launched during the Google I/ O 2019 event last week. Since then, the code has been delved into to see what’s new, and one aspect that’s being tested takes the form of an app announced “Safety Hub.”

Further investigation discovers Google is attempting to get Android inventions to detect when a vehicle crash has come, it’s too set to be a Pixel-exclusive feature if it obliges it out of beta. This is confirmed by the Manifest declaration for the app, which includes “PIXEL_EXPERIENCE” in the Android name field.

What’s unclear right now is how Google is getting a smartphone to specifically detect a gondola disintegrate has existed. What combination of sensor data could detect such a scenario with 100 percent accuracy? I’d guess Android Q could easily tell when you are journey in a vehicle based on GPS data and rapidity. It could also easily detect an impact, or sudden stop, or odd movement such as the phone being flipped. Bringing all of that together may be enough to expertly see an accident.

The other question to ask is, what’s the time of Safety Hub? If Google can confidently see a car accident, the app could be directed to contact the emergency services automatically. In turn, Safety Hub would greeting faster than anyone in the accident as well as those who come to their aid. In other texts, if Google gets this right, it could save lives.
