Mobile Sensing Tools


Ethica Data

Ethica is a free smartphone application, which collects GPS and accelerometry data. These data allow us to measure location-based physical activity, infer transportation mode and measure well-being using ecological momentary assessment.

SenseDoc

The SenseDoc is a research grade multisensor device used for mobility (GPS) and physical activity (accelerometer) tracking. These data are collected continuously and allow us to measure location-based physical activity and infer transportation mode.
