Automatic Detections with Forced Trips

While in automatic detection mode, the SDK can be forced to start a trip. Doing so will prevent the SDK from detecting stationary moments and force it to continue collecting trip data until the trip is explicitly stopped.

Once the forced trip is stopped, the SDK will resume automatic detections.

Starting a Trip

You can start a trip as follows:

Sentiance.shared.startTrip(metadata: metadata, transportModeHint: hint) { result, error in

The metadata is an NSDictionary representing a map of string to string types. You can use it to attach any piece of information to this trip. The transportModeHint is a hint you can give the SDK about the type of transport the trip is (e.g. car, bicycle, etc.).

In case starting a trip fails, you can check the error to determine the reason.

Stopping a Trip

To stop a trip that you've started, call stopTrip as follows:

Sentiance.shared.stopTrip { result, error in

If stopping the trip fails, you can check the error to determine why. To check if a trip is ongoing before calling stopTrip, see this guide.
