Smartphones for science

Project description

This project seeks to develop software to enable modern smartphones to become valuable scientific instruments. Specifically, we aim to make it easy for non-technical scientists to collect sensor data from smartphones, as well as questionnaire and opinion data. Our tools are developed to support large-scale global experiments. A number of international collaborators are involved in this project.
