Firstly a great big hello to the QS community, I have been an avid lurker for the past 6 month or so, checking out the general views and needs of people who use sensors to track their health or anything else.
This is not a self-promotion post, even though it might seem like one, we are genuinely in need of any input other than our own. Please bear with me
SenseView is a product of 3 years of very hard and dedicated work by a small group of people who now need, and would dare to ask for your help.
SenseView gives the users the ability to connect to various external or internal sensors to collect, view, share and analyze different sensoric readouts of the user and his/her environment. It is a wonderful (please excuse my obvious bias and enormous love for the project) platform which allows for very quick and simple integration of additional internal or external sensors and algorithms, made by developers around the globe. Currently supports Android 4.0 and higher versions due to an improved interface and processing power requirements - a dual core is preferred, quads work perfectly.
The application works with all internal and an expanding base of external sensors (currently fully supported are Zephyr HxM and BH3 and sensors from Shimmer, which work but are not integrated in this version). Using the Mobilis framework the app can be easily adapted to accept different types of projects, protocols, algorithms and sensors.
Some of the parameters the application can track (in real time) include: ECG, RtoR, breathing rate, posture, accelerations and gyroscopes, GPS, light sensors, proximity sensors, magnetic fields …
SenseView is fully capable of including any additionaly developed algorithms such as: Pedometer(working), fall detection, alarm thresholds for different parametres etc.
Our goal is to make SenseView an open platform, so that users can add their own additional sensors and algorithms in time.
We are now searching for the best candidates amongst commercially available sensors to integrate in the upcoming versions, and would like to ask you, the actual userbase, about what you think. Which sensors would you like to see integrated, what would you change, what bothers you with the application, what do you like? Any suggestions? What would you use it for? What would you like to see us integrate next?
For now our aim is to get as much feedback on different levels as we possibly can.
If you’re still with me, thank you. A bit about us:
I am part of a very small (tiny even) development group called Mobili specializing in bio-sensoric solutions and remote tracking of single persons or groups of people.
We are a part of the CHIRON EU project and have been actively developing our SenseView app for Android devices (4.0+ only), which is built using our Mobilis framework.
I’d like to express our graditute to all of you for help and would ask for
any comments, ideas and suggestions. Anything goes, we will use these
suggestions to make SenseView even better. Don’t be afraid to criticize, we will take everything in account.
Sincere thanks from the Mobili team!
