Macmillan’s app, “Zombies, Run!” doesn’t currently offer accelerometer distance tracking, but his team is working on it, using treadmill research and a different approach to distance calculations. “By only needing to measure the relative change in a person’s speed, rather than attempting to accurately estimate the runner’s actual speed, we believe we can create a model that works for a very wide range of runners. In this way we hope that the runner’s stride length, height and weight will not be important when we make our calculations.” Will this approach work? Only time will tell..
