<p>Tire-road friction is an important parameter for a number of different safety features present in modern-day vehicles, and the knowledge of this friction may also prove useful to the driver of a vehicle while it is in motion. In particular, this information may help inform a driver of dangerous low-traction situations that he or she may need to be aware of. Furthermore, since a growing number of drivers have access to Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, it is worth exploring how these devices may be leveraged in concert with vehicular CAN-bus networks to provide valuable safety information.</p>
