The motivation for this is for estimating dimensions - rooms, yards/lawns, camping sites, game fields, etc. without needing to carry anything extra, and to get some familiarity with using the accelerometer (as I'm already familiar with the other pieces, having written a fairly involved watch face, Timely)
As the development period doesn't officially start until tomorrow at 1pm EST, I'm focusing purely on planning/theory/research right now - keeping track of it in Trello here.
2014-08-15, 1PM EST:
- Add additional methods for measurement (pedometer/counter, etc.) and ensure settings page is in place, then resume algorithm work.
2014-09-05, 5PM EST:
- Publish final code to github and final app to store, sanity check, confirm/test all functionality until the 8PM deadline.
Thoughts/comments/suggestions welcome, especially from anyone who's dared to try to use a single accelerometer with no gyroscope to double integrate and approximate distances
