Increased popularity in ‘wearable technology’ means more and more data is available from fitness tracking devices and mobile phone apps. TRL has successfully extracted, analysed and reported on GPS data from a range of sources, including route tracking apps such as Strava.
The accuracy of the data varies dependent on the specific hardware and software; we have carried out practical testing to demonstrate what level of precision a particular recording is subject to.
Data can be used to reconstruct events using time, speed and distance measurements and can support or refute different parties’ versions of events.
