Study: Smartphone Data Could Cut Crashes

 

 

 

” Data from smartphone traffic apps can help prevent traffic crashes by helping deploy police resources at the most accident-prone areas, Israeli researchers say.

Researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev say data from geosocial networks like the Global Positioning System traffic app Waze can identify locations where collisions occur most frequently.

Waze, with a reported 30 million worldwide users, records location data and enables users to upload and share comments on traffic alerts, collisions or police presence. “

” Raymarine has launched new mobile apps for tablets and smartphones that let anglers wirelessly control c-Series and e-Series multifunction displays. The RayControl app transforms tablets into full-function MFD repeaters with seamless touch-screen interaction. RayControl comes with a virtual slide-out keypad that emulates the actual MFD keypad, allowing interaction anywhere on board. “

 

 

 

  “Researchers from the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center have developed malicious software that can remotely seize control of the camera on an infected smartphone and employ it to spy on the phone’s user.

The malware, dubbed “PlaceRaider,” “allows remote hackers to reconstruct rich, three-dimensional models of the smartphone owner’s personal indoor spaces through completely opportunistic use of the camera,” the researchers said in a study published last week.”
