How It Detects the Crash

It uses a Motion Sensor with High Dynamic Range Gyroscope that helps the device maintain the axis during rotation. And it also uses a High-G Accelerometer that helps in the measurement of acceleration forces. Apart from these, it uses GPS, Barometer, Microphone, and Advanced Motion Algorithms. It detects several crashes with front-impact, side-impact, rear-end collisions, and rollovers. When the crash is detected, you’ll receive a 10-second alert, through which you can dismiss or call the emergency services and contacts. After the countdown ends, it will automatically contact emergency services. It will send your location with its longitude and latitude.
