In this paper we present the approach to use
smartphones as a multi sensor platform in a field
operational test respectively a naturalistic driving
study. Modern smartphones offer the sensor
capability to detect speed and position as well as the
accelerations that are experienced by the phone.
With our approach those sensors can be used to
measure the mobility with a car or other vehicles.
First we will explain the advantage of smartphones
over dedicated data loggers for certain purposes.
Then we describe the measurement system and the
application that has been built-up for that purpose
and afterwards we will discuss the calibration
process for the acceleration data in the post-
processing to fit the car’s coordinate system. Finally
we show results from a measurement campaign to
validate the data recorded with several smartphones
in comparison to results recorded with a highly
accurate inertial measurement platform.
