A driver made a left turn from a stright-only lane right in front of me as I was proceeding straight through the
intersection from my straight or left lane.
I have occasionally turned on the accelerometer and gyro
logging in FluxStream Capture while I drive. This time
around, I have even more data. You can see the massive
deceleration and the associated spike in my heart rate and
drop in my beat spacing (RR). I haven't pulled my GPS data
yet, but I was able to spot this easily in the FluxStream
graph. Those dips in the Acceleration data really stand out.
Interestingly, my heart rate also reflects my mood afterward.
Initially relieved that I didn't get hit this time, then enraged
that it had nearly happened again, calming slowly as I
composed in my head a letter to the City of Addison
imploring them to add more signage at that intersection.
