Smartphones have taught to determine the owner's intoxication by gait

Smartphones can now “betray” their owner who drank alcohol. American scientists managed to find out with almost one hundred percent accuracy the degree of intoxication of a person by his gait.





Modern smartphones can now show whether their owner is intoxicated or if he did not drink alcohol at all. In an experiment, scientists at Stanford University in the United States could determine the degree of intoxication by the smallest differences in gait in 90% of cases, writes the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs.

The study involved 22 volunteers aged 21 to 43 years. They drank a vodka cocktail to a certain level of alcohol in the breath.

After that, the participants in the experiment were attached to their lower backs with a smartphone and for seven hours the subjects took 10 steps forward and backward once an hour until the alcohol concentration fell below the level allowed in the United States for driving a car.

Each time the smartphone measured the acceleration of the body, as well as sideways and back and forth movements. Moreover, in 90% of cases, scientists could determine the degree of intoxication by the smallest differences in gait.

“Research has shown that our phones can be helpful in identifying signs of alcohol-related dysfunction,” the study authors stressed.

Recall that the use of smartphones while walking has been banned in Japan.

As previously reported, an artificial intelligence system for health advice has been developed. AI will be able to help a person improve his health with the help of gadgets.
