[6.6.4] - 18 Mar 2024

Added

  • Proguard rule to prevent stripping of runtime SDK class annotations, in R8 full mode.

Changed

  • Increased the capacity for storing downloaded speed limit data.

Fixed

  • Initialization failure on Oreo or lower, due to null app process name.

  • Initialization failure due to missing @InjectUsing annotation, addressed by the Proguard rule addition.

  • An issue that caused a small gap in the collected sensor data during the initial phase of a trip.

[6.6.3] - 5 Mar 2024

Fixed

  • Transport mode detection for short transports.

  • Computation of the various safety scores for short transports.

[6.6.2] - 23 Feb 2024

Fixed

  • A rare IllegalStateException thrown in v6.5.0, when refreshing venue/speed-limit information in the background.

[6.5.0] - 13 Oct 2023

Added

  • Call-while-moving safety score, which is computed using phone calls that are detected during vehicular transports. Corresponding call-while-moving events can be retrieved via the Driving Insights API.

  • Legal driving safety score, which is computed using the traveled speed information during vehicular transports, in addition to the use of speed limit information that is downloaded and stored offline by the SDK. Corresponding speeding events can be retrieved via the Driving Insights API.

  • Overall safety score, which is computed using the other safe driving scores.

  • Support for targeting Android 14 (API level 34) at the app level. With this update, the manifest file of the core Sentiance SDK now specifies some foreground service types that are only available when compiling against API level 34. Therefore, to avoid compile time errors, you need to update your app's compileSdk to 34. An alternative (but not recommended) workaround can be found here.

Production Readiness Update

In this release, the following features have been promoted from Early Access to Production Ready:

  • Transport classification

  • Home & work detection

  • User segment detection

  • User's current context information

See our On-Device Features page for more information about these features. Detailed overview of feature production readiness can be found on this page.

This version includes breaking changes for some Early Access features.

Breaking

  • HarshDrivingEvent now provides separate start and end dates, instead of a single event date.

Added

  • Phone usage detection during vehicular transports. This feature is part of the on-device Driving Insights feature. It uses a custom machine learning model to accurately detect phone usages. The detected events can be obtained using the getPhoneUsageEvents.

  • Focused driving safety score, which is calculated by taking into account the detected phone usage events during vehicular transports. See SafetyScore.

Fixed

  • Improvements to the on-device home and work location detection.

  • Incorrect user semantic time when querying the user's context.

  • Potentially lingering SDK foreground service, when a user gets deactivated.

[6.3.4] - 21 Jun 2023

Fixed

  • Stability fixes to the home/work detection and venue-type mapping features.

[6.3.3] - 23 May 2023

Fixed

  • Excessive battery usage while detections are disabled, caused by an unterminated Android job.

[6.3.2] - 8 May 2023

Fixed

  • Runtime exception caused by stack overflow during stationary venue-type mapping.

  • Stability improvements to home and work venue detection.

[6.3.1] - 19 Apr 2023

Fixed

  • Runtime exception when using the TransportSession feature.

[6.3.0] - 7 Apr 2023

This version includes breaking changes for some Early Access features.

Added

  • A new Driving Insights feature, which provides information about a user's driving behaviour. In this first version, the SDK detects harsh driving events (e.g. acceleration, braking, and turning), which are then used to compute a vehicular transport's smooth driving score. This data is available via the new DrivingInsightsApi, which allows the subscription to, and retrieval of DrivingInsights and HarshDrivingEvents. This feature is accessible via the sdk-driving-insights artifact, and must be enabled by Sentiance before use.

  • A new TransportSession API, which allows the subscription to, and retrieval of TransportSessions. A transport session corresponds to a transport that was detected by the SDK, and includes information such as the mode of transport, and the raw sensor data that was used to classify it. This API is primarily intended to be used for accessing the raw sensor data. To simply be notified of new transports, it's more efficient to utilize the UserContextApi.

  • A short history of locations inside VehicleCrashEvent, which represent the preceding locations leading up to the crash event.

Fixed

  • Rare issue that causes the incorrect determination of the end of a stationary.

Removed

  • BREAKING: a number of user segments that are no longer supported.

[6.2.3] - 16 Feb 2023

Fixed

  • Runtime exception when retrieving historic app exit reasons, as a result of buggy Android framework code on some Samsung devices.

Fixed

  • Runtime exception when targeting Google Play Services Location library v21.

[6.2.0] - 9 Jan 2023

This version includes breaking changes for some Early Access features.

Added

  • Transport waypoint and distance information to TransportEvent, which is part of the event list returned in UserContext. Both waypoints and distance are based on unprocessed (i.e. raw) location data.

  • User's current semantic time info to UserContext (e.g. morning, lunch, evening). See SemanticTime.

  • Support for uploading additional SDK status information to the Sentiance Cloud Platform.

  • New SDK dependencies. See dependencies.

Changed

  • Stationary venue mapping has been update to an improved version, but that is limited to venue-type mapping. i.e. a stationary will no longer reference a specific venue, but a venue type instead.

  • Improved support for on-device user segment detection.

  • The Android target and compile API versions have been updated to 33.

  • Improved detection of delayed SDK initialization.

Fixed

  • IllegalArgumentException caused by inconsistency during sorting a collection.

  • ForegroundServiceStartNotAllowedException when starting a service in the background.

  • NullPointerException when uploading logs to the Sentiance Cloud Platform.

Removed

  • BREAKING: UserContextUpdateCriteria.ACTIVE_MOMENTS.

  • BREAKING: venueSignificance is removed from StationaryEvent, and moved to the Venue class. StationaryEvent now references a Venue.

  • BREAKING: VenueCandidates and Visit classes are removed. venueCandidates has been removed from StationaryEvent.

  • BREAKING: Venue now has a nullable location, which previously was not nullable. The location can be null when it's unknown, such as when a stationary has a venue significance of "point of interest". In this case, only the venue type is known, but not its exact location.

  • BREAKING: Venue no longer has venue name or labels.

[6.1.0] - 30 Sep 2022 (Unpublished. Use 6.1.1)

This version includes breaking changes for some Early Access features.

Added

  • Diagnostic API for monitoring vehicle crash detection. See setVehicleCrashDiagnosticListener.

  • App-configurable rules to control SDK data transmission to the Sentiance Cloud Platform. The app can specify which of the following data types are allowed to be transmitted to the Sentiance platform: vehicle crash data, SDK and device info, general detection data, all data. See setTransmittableDataTypes.

  • Support for car, bus, train, and tram/metro transport mode detection, part of the user's current context information.

  • A new method to help test your crash detection integration. See invokeDummyCrash().

  • A new method to check if crash detection is supported on the device for a specific trip type. See isCrashDetectionSupported(TripType).

Changed

  • Points of interest data is no longer provided in the StationaryInfo object (returned by getStationaryInfo()) by default. If you use this data, please reach out to us before updating to this SDK version.

  • On Android 9 and above, when background execution is restricted for your app (by the user or an OS power saving feature), SDK detections will no longer run. An SdkStatus update will be delivered to your app, with startStatus set to PENDING and isBackgroundProcessingRestricted set to true so that you can take the appropriate action.

  • Library dependency changes:

    • Removed compile-time dependency on com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305

    • Added runtime dependency on org.tensorflow:tensorflow-lite:2.2.0. This dependency adds native libraries to your app. To limit their architectures, see here.
