1. A method to detect execution of driving maneuvers based on pre-determined driving maneuver profiles, the method comprising:

  • generating output signals from two or more sensors conveying information related to operation and/or context of a vehicle;

    determining one or more vehicles parameters based on the output signals, the one or more vehicle parameters being related to the operation and/or context of the vehicle;

    obtaining one or more pre-determined driving maneuver profiles, the one or more pre-determined driving maneuver profiles including criteria sets associated with driving maneuvers, the one or more pre-determined driving maneuver profiles including a first pre-determined driving maneuver profile having a first criteria set, the first criteria set including a first individual criterion and a second individual criterion, wherein the first individual criterion and the second individual criterion for the first pre-determined driving maneuver profile are associated with information conveyed by the output signals from the two or more different sensors;

    detecting, in real-time or near real-time, execution by the vehicle of a specific driving maneuver, the specific driving maneuver detected based on the determined vehicle parameters and the obtained pre-determined driving maneuver profiles by comparing the determined vehicle parameters to the criteria sets such that a first specific driving maneuver is detected responsive to the determined parameters satisfying the first individual criterion and the second individual criterion; and

    facilitating, in real-time or near real-time, responsive to the detection of the specific driving maneuver, wireless communication to a remote computing device of the information conveyed by the output signals for a period of time that includes at least the specific driving maneuver.
