for police officers
The FST application is the electronic version of the paper Field Sobriety Test. The application is based on the widespread police test to define driver’s ability to control a vehicle. The application can be used both by police officer, and by drivers to test themselves.
FST application helps police officers to avoid time consuming and monotonous paperwork. No more carrying paper forms—everything is in the mobile phone, ready to be filled out half as much time. After the e-form is filled out, it is sent by e-mail, quick and simple!
DISADVANTAGES OF PAPER FST
Manual filling in takes twice as much time and both hands are needed to complete the forms, while with electronic FST everything can be done with one finger required to operate the convenient digital keyboard
It is necessary to understand different handwritings and it requires good lighting for both writing and reading, what could be problematic in the police officers’ conditions of work.
risk of loss
No more carrying of heavy papers and worrying about them getting damaged or lost.
iOS mobile application
Unlike the paper forms, the application has a set of necessary tools to make the process of filling out forms easier for you.

The report is filled out in digital form with an easy to read font on a phone screen or on the paper if printed out.
Easily accessible digital reports are sent via e-mail, what allows the officers to report the incidents immediately.
TEST: WALK AND TURN
The application has embedded tools to record results of a walk & turn test. Test UI is designed in such a way that the user can quickly and easily fill in the result with one finger.
To input finger-to-nose test results, one just need to mark a point on the face, as it is done in paper tests, but it is also easier to erase and mark it again, if necessary.
Developed to ease filling in the data in the event of poor lighting or bright sun, when the screen is exposed to direct sunlight.
The application does not require Internet connection to operate, the report can be completed offline and sent when there is a connection.
In case of mistakes, the officer could easily revisit the step and edit the data. No need to start the new form, as it was previously with the hard copies.
FST might be useful for ordinary people who would like to test themselves for the ability to drive.
If someone is not sure he or she can drive, we recommend taking this test to make an objective decision based on the test results.
Nevertheless, we strongly advise everyone to avoid driving after drinking alcohol, and to take a taxi or choose a ride-sharing option.
