No Crash Dummy. A system that detects a car crash and calls for help is nothing new (GM’s OnStar, anyone?), but one that could live inside your smartphone, well that could be special. According to some code sleuths, the upcoming Android Q may have car crash detection built in. They base this not on seeing the features in action, but code comments like this: “automatically launch an alert activity when the device detects you are in a car crash.” How this would work is anyone’s guess. For my part, I’d hope that if the phone does detect a crash, it asks the driver if, in fact, they were in one and did not simply stop short. I don’t need the phone making a call every time someone cuts me off.
