I suspect it might need to be post processing of video images.
Also the G-force meters in the phones should allow measuring side to side rocking, pedal smoothness and G-force in corners (just how strong do those wheels need to be?). Power vs. g-force gets effectiveness of power application and a higher granularity on speed (again to the start reaction).
"a couple of years" is about right

But, keep the ideas coming. You never know, some may be easier to implement than imagined. I'm still learning all of the different frameworks and what they can (and cannot) do.
