The widespread use of portable GPS systems and applications is a boon for avid bicyclists who want to monitor performance and progress. These systems are also assumed to be a boon for crash reconstruction experts wanting to analyze the time-speed-distance relationships in the last few seconds leading up to and following a bicycle crash. However, how useful are these systems in bicycle crash reconstruction? The following two possible interactive data gathering exercises will provide participants insight into the advantages/limitations of GPS data, and will shed light on how best to interpret GPS data particularly in non-steady state conditions.
