It seems that Karoo is uniquely positioned to be able to take advantage of crash sensors like Specialized's ANGi as the Karoo has cellular connectivity and GPS.
Using a service like Twilio send a text message to emergency contacts alerting them of a possible user crash with their last known location. User would be alerted to a detected crash with a flashing screen and a countdown to alert broadcast. To abort broadcast user would hold down any one of the non-power hard keys or hold the on-screen button for some period of time. Holding the key stops but does not reset the countdown.
To help distribute the crash event it would be nice to have a short URL ie. crash.hammerhead.io/123456, for a crash event that could be shared with emergency response teams. This webpage would show emergency info:
- Medical Conditions, ie. Asthma
- Emergency Contact Info
- Speed prior to impact
- Map showing:
- - Path and direction of travel in the 30 seconds prior to the crash
- - Crash location
- - Last known location (updated continuously)
