DriversitiSDK for iOS

The DriversitiSDK for iOS enables Driversiti customers track driver behavior and receive real-time event notifications for enrolled drivers. In addition to real-time notifications, these behaviors and events are uploaded to Driversiti’s hosted cloud, allowing Driversiti’s customers later access to the behaviors and overall driving scores of their company’s drivers.

DriversitiSDK employs Driversiti’s patented real-time crash detection to notify the host application if DriversitiSDK detects a vehicle crash using the phone’s sensors.

Requirements and Supported Devices for iOS Version

  • iOS 7.1 and higher
  • iPhone 5S, SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, and 7 Plus
  • Host application must enable the location UIBackgroundMode and location always usage
  • If prompted, the user must allow access to GPS in background and access to the Activity Monitor.

Getting Started

  • Receive a DriversitiSDK Developer Key
  • Install the DriversitiSDK (CocoaPods is recommended)
  • Change project settings to enable SDK
  • Using the SDK in App.
  • Check out the full SDK documentation on cocoadocs.
  • Check out the wiki for details on specific topics.

Changes and Release Notes:

  • All AP classes have been renamed to an associated Driversiti type.
  • Examples include: APTrip is Now DriversitiTrip and APTripEvent is now DriversitiEvent

  • Be sure to change all deprecated call as they were deprecated for a security flaw and no longer return valid objects.
  • Using the recommended and corresponding calls will work by returning valid data of the new data types.

1. Receive a DriversitiSDK Developer Key

Before DriversitiSDK will operate, your organization will need to acquire an DriversitiSDK Developer Key, which may be requested using the Driversiti SDK Key Request form. Your organization only needs one shared SDK key, which can be used by multiple developers within your organization and for both the iOS and Android platforms.

2a. Installing the DriversitiSDK (CocoaPods)

Driversiti recommends and supports the use of CocoaPods to manage downloading and linking the DriversitiSDK into your app project. To integrate, simply specify it in your Podfile. For example

target "{NAME_OF_XCODE_TARGET}" do
  pod 'DriversitiSDK'

Make sure to replace {NAME_OF_XCODE_TARGET} with the name of your target in your Xcode project, typically the name of your app.

2b. Installing the DriversitiSDK manually

While CocoaPods is recommended, developers using other project dependency managers can incorporate the DriversitiSDK manually. Developers can find the following required files within this repository.

  • A static library, libDriversitiSDK.a, located in the repository root.
  • Public header files located in include/DriversitiSDK/.
  • A required resource bundle named Driversiti.bundle located in the repository root. This bundle must be include as-is into the host applications main bundle.

Additionally, a developer incorporating manually, must also incorporate DriversitiSDK’s required dependencies. These dependencies are listed in the DriversitiSDK.podspec file located in the repository root.

3. Required App Project Settings

  • Enable BitCode needs to be set to NO at the application project level.
  • Background Modes under Capabilities must be turned on, and Location Updates must be enabled.
  • NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription in your Info.plist must be specified. The string specified will be prompted to the user once the DriversitiSDK starts up, if the app had not already received prior user permission to always run in the background.

4. Using the SDK in App.

a. Initialize the SDK

When using the SDK, a developer should first set the organization’s key on the shared DriversitiSDK object. Additionally, the host application should ensure that locationOptions passed into the UIApplicationDelegate are also passed into DriversitiSDK using the startWithLaunchOptions: method. An example application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: for the host application is provided below.

#import <DriversitiSDK/DriversitiSDK.h>

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {

    [[DriversitiSDK sharedInstance] setAPIKey:@"{DriversitiSDK-Developer-Key}"]
    [[DriversitiSDK sharedInstance] startWithLaunchOptions:launchOptions];


replacing {DriversitiSDK-Developer-Key} with your key.

Additionally, to provide DriversitiSDK the opportunity to continue to operate when the host application enters the background, please include the following in the host application’s applicationDidEnterBackground: method

__block UIBackgroundTaskIdentifier taskID = [application beginBackgroundTaskWithExpirationHandler:^{
        [[NSOperationQueue mainQueue] addOperationWithBlock:^{
            [[[DriversitiSDK sharedInstance] operationQueue] waitUntilAllOperationsAreFinished];
            [application endBackgroundTask:taskID];
            taskID = UIBackgroundTaskInvalid;

b. Register User

Before the SDK can begin reporting detections, a User needs to be registered using the appropriate methods on UserManager. An example is provided below.

[[UserManager sharedInstance]
         completionBlock:^(NSError *error)
           if (error != nil) {
             // Handle error case
           } else {
             // Handle success case

Importantly, {COMPANY} will need to be set to the Company name specified to you by [email protected]. For trial customers, please use Soteria as the company name.

c. Set DriversitiSensorDelegate Delegate and start Data Collection

To receive real-time event notifications, the host application will need to register an instance conforming to the DriversitiSensorDelegate protocol using the sensorDelegate property on DriversitiSDK.

Once everything is setup, the host application should call the -startDataCollection method on DriversitiSDK. Notice of events will flow into the host application through the DriversitiSensorDelegate.
