[enviroCar-discuss] enviroCar app - version 0.8.0 release

MatthesRieke
Dear enviroCar community,

we hereby announce the release of version 0.8.0 of the enviroCar Anrdoid app [1]. This version supports observing additional vehicle phenomenons. In particular, more driving-style related parameters are received via the OBD device and GPS accuracy information is stored to allow quality assessments of the measurements.

This results in slightly extended JSON contents of a Track, including general metadata and additional properties for every measurement. If you maintain a software component which parses the data, you might want to verify its stable behaviour. Note that this only affects Tracks that are created with version 0.8.0 or above.

See the detailed changelog in the following.
  • Re-design of the dashboard user interface
  • include general metadata and additional phenomena into a Track
  • improved off-line support through a dedicated cache layer
  • fix issues with DriveDeck Sports adapter (crashes and connection issues)
  • include a new announcement system to allow broadcasting of app related news
  • increase performance of remote track parsing
  • fix several issues of the “My Tracks” view
  • Support for Android 4.4.

Kind regards,
Matthes (on behalf of the enviroCar team)

Dear Matthes, that is good news!

A student will be working on implementing a good map matching algorithm;
most of these algorithms assume that GPS direction is also known. Is
this recorded, and can this be retrieved?

Hi Edzer,

yes, if the Android device supports this (and I assume the vast majority does), we store GPS bearing and also accuracy information (Android-native accuracy plus DOP [1]). An example set of properties is available at [2].

Best,
Matthes
