Abstract

Utilizing mobile devices for gaining a better understanding of one’s surrounding, physiological state and overall behavior has been argued for in many previous works. Despite the increasing usage of mobile devices for research in this space, few platforms developed are readily available for supporting the wider research community. This paper presents a mobile sensing platform that allows for exploiting the latest and ever-increasing capabilities residing in mobile devices. While we highlight the main design and implementation characteristics of this solution, we also outline our experiences with this platform for typical usage scenarios in lifestyle management.
