I’m sure the rollercoaster thing could probably be fixed by a geofence but for the “dropped while driving” thing I can’t think of any way to exclude that


other_usernames_gone t1_irt1erh wrote

Maybe check the direction of the acceleration.

If you drop a phone and don't crash you'll get 9.8m/s^2 down for half a meter to a meter and then a stop.

If you crash you'll also get quite a lot of lateral declaration as you hit a tree or whatever and brake hard. The initial breaking will probably be longer than the amount of time a phone takes to drop.


celaconacr t1_irti6tt wrote

I don't think you could detect the force direction quickly enough to do that.

On a static phone you can detect down using gravity. When the phone is potentially spinning and moving in any direction you can't as easily separate the forces applied from the phone motion. Essentially you get an output of forces in 3d but it isn't tied to a direction directly.


NotAHost t1_iruc8va wrote

You have an IMU that uses both a gyroscope and acceleration.


designingtheweb t1_iru80s0 wrote

You can drop the phone upside down, back first, screen first, etc. Any orientation is possible. It can even be spinning. I will be hard to detect down.


guiltycornet77 t1_irw4q4t wrote

You don’t need the direction however, just the magnitude of the acceleration in 3D prior to impact. If it is within the ballpark of 9.8 m/s prior to the massive impulse spike caused by it hitting the ground you can disregard the spike as a drop. If the phone is at a resting state/a state with very little acceleration prior to impact (ie a phone on a dash in a car that immediately hits a wall) or has a large magnitude of deceleration (driver hits the breaks quickly before impact) than you can diagnose that as a crash. You don’t need direction of acceleration if you just simplify the problem

smoke detectors do something similiar(at least Photoelectric smoke alarms do) when they first detect smoke(by the lightbeam being interupted/scatterd and thus the current changing on the sensor) they send out a couple more light flashes in quick sucession(they usualy send a beam every so often(i think it was every second or 5 seconds? anyway, not constantly)to check if the disturbance was just a dust particle or actual smoke THEN it rings the alarm....


not hard to implement something similiar into this i imagine.


crappy80srobot t1_irvd4eq wrote

My pixel has gone off twice over the years. The first time I slammed my phone down in the seat because I was mad at someone. I didn't know what the alarm and the person talking was at first because I forgot I had the feature. Kinda put me in a panic. Good thing it ask if your okay first and doesn't immediately call 911. It really seems like a non-issue as long as the iPhone functions the same way. Honestly don't know why this is a story or why anyone talks about this feature. It's nothing new and these instances have been seen before. I feel like I heard the same talking points three years ago.


invalidarrrgument t1_iruwiam wrote

I think you could use the fact that if you drop your phone while driving after it impacts the floor the car will continue driving. In the car crash the scenario you generally come to a stop.

NateCow t1_irtw81f wrote

How so? Theme parks are pretty large swaths of land devoid of transit roads. If it detects what it thinks is a car crash and you happen to be 1) nowhere near a road and 2) inside a geofence of a known theme park, it's pretty easy to assume it's a false alarm.


whopperlover17 t1_irtxuig wrote

Well my point is carnivals and other things like that. I think with the wealth of sensors available it should just need some tuning to be able to not have as many false positives.


snakebite2017 t1_irvhn5c wrote

How saying I'm fine after dropping it. The phone mic is on right?


Sv1a t1_irvijp1 wrote

I think the easiest way is to make a delay bigger before calling 911.

I have apple watch and they detected me fall quite a few times (few were false alarms because I hit my hand too hard while boxing and few were real ones where I slipped or fell of the bike). It had some time for me to report if I was OK before calling any of my emergency contacts.


Reep1611 t1_irvjxoy wrote

It can be fixed mich easier. Either don’t drop you damn phone because you put it into a closed pocket as you should or don‘t bring it on the coaster in the first place. Obviously the crash feature will trigger after it being subjected to unusual g forces and a sudden hard stopp.

None of that is about Crash Detection, though. That's the SOS system that the iphone has had for years and there's nothing to fix - it's working as intended. If you 'slide the wrong bar' YOU have told the iphone to call emergency services. Same if you clicked the lock button FIVE times.

Crash Detection is supposed to activate when there's severe jostling of the phone. It shouldn't activate on a simple drop, but it might need tuning.


professorDissociate t1_irstv18 wrote

Integration with their maps service is probably a good route to take. Currently, I imagine the scope is set to something like “whenever phone is traveling fast and gets jerked around a lot.”

At the cost of protection while off-roading (lol to that), they could refine the scope by seeing if you’re actually on a road first.


rickg t1_irsz4uo wrote

I think (but am not 100% on this) that they collected a lot of real world data from iPhones and use machine learning to try to figure out what was a crash vs jostling.

tastyratz t1_irsfjvi wrote

More obvious observation:

Geofence crash detection on rollercoasters in known amusement parks because people won't do that.

You could also disable crash detection for 5 minutes when G forces and speeds exceed a certain criterea (i.e. combination of speed, accel, force, and time) when in the entire confines of an amusement park and similar locations.

This is easily solved through software by design. It won't fix corner cases (like traveling carnival rides) but I bet it solves a significant number of fixed location issues.

Edited to improve clarity after some confusion


SkyeAuroline t1_irsqo45 wrote

>for 5 minutes

Most rides are significantly under 5 minutes, this wouldn't solve much...


tastyratz t1_irss3l8 wrote

Most rides are absolutely under 5 minutes so detecting high speed and forces inside a geofence and then disabling for a 5 minute period every time should cover... most if not all rides.

If Apple is worried about liability then they could pop a temp notification that the feature is currently disabled for x reason (just like you might see with a wet charging port on android).

This allows for automatic crash and fall detection feature disablement without user interactivity in false detection scenarios.

The 5 minute timer could start every time they get on a ride and they can still have fall detection walking the park. They could even tie in heart rate / apple watch false readings.

This is also an EXTREMELY broad and short solution by a Redditor with very little investment. I am sure any implementation would get far more complex. Maybe it's... 4 minutes? 3? a weighted answer depending on forces?

Either way, it can easily be refined.


SkyeAuroline t1_irst48i wrote

Okay, you meant "disabling for 5 minutes when those forces are detected in a geofenced area" - the way it was worded, it read like "disabling after 5 minutes of G-forces", which would be a whole lot harder to make work, lol. My mistake.


tastyratz t1_irsvrt8 wrote

No worries, I could have been more clear by putting a comma after amount or saying "amount of time" so now I see where you had your confusion. That part is on me.


locks_are_paranoid t1_itjxp3y wrote

The best way for Apple to not have liability is to not have any of these features in the first place. The world was perfectly fine when the only way to call 911 was to physically press the buttons 9-1-1 in the phone app. And the day the flip phones they were physical buttons, and in the days of rotary phones it was a dial. There was also a large swath of time where a landline phone would have physical buttons.

Yeah I have a suction mount for my phone. Considering how heavy the Pro/Pro Max models are... it doesn't take that much for the weight of the phone plus a hot day to cause the suction to fail. This causes the mount (with my phone) to come crashing down.

When finally done surfing, I came back to 20+ missed calls from my emergency contacts (parents, brother) and several calls from 911. Turns out my phone in my bag while PARKED detected a "car crash" and let everyone know.

Of course, I couldn't respond because I was surfing for several parents literally thought I died in a car crash for a moment.

I checked to see if my car had maybe been hit by someone else to see if that triggered it but not everything was perfectly fine just a complete false alarm

Having a phone is super useful since you spend the first 95% of the "ride" in line. Having your phone to pass the time, lookup ride information, contact other ppl, etc. is just plain useful.


BarbequedYeti t1_irsspmy wrote

Add geo-fenching around amusement parks to void all those by default, then you just have to deal with the traveling type fairs. You could probably even get a database with their setup addresses and geofence those off as well. It would take a bit of backend work, but would handle 99% of the false positives without user intervention.


MotelMonMurderMadnes t1_irw0phm wrote

Geofence is not the correct solution to this problem. It’s a bandaid to handle one failure case when the underlying system is broken. What happens when there’s a standalone roller coaster that isn’t in an amusement park? What happens when you crash your car on the outskirts of an amusement park?

Crash detection shouldn’t be going off for anything but a car crash. If you have to think about geofencing areas where phones are experiencing unusual forces, something is wrong with the feature.


z0r0 t1_irsqb7e wrote

Calling it now- this "feature" is going to be a lot more of a hassle than apple bargained for. There's no winning here- to make this a usable feature, it requires WAY more investment into things like geofencing, analytics around where and how people use their phones and data crunching around things like pop-up carnivals. I give it a few months before orgs like the FCC step in to put a stop to it.
