Our app is back! Check it out at the Google Play store page.
We will use this app for our hack-a-thon at SAS next month.
There are quite a few students working with us this summer to make Sensibility Testbed more stable, having more functions. For example, we are adding sensors to read data in your cars!
Our new github repo has both Sensibility and BlurSense code. Please check it out here.
We had a newer version of Sensibility app in Google Play store just a few days ago. The tickets fixed include some initialization problems with SL4A, and the new code is much more stable than the earlier version this February.
Note that if you experienced any webpage access issues, please refer to our Sensibility page for more info. We are currently working on getting this resolved.
UPDATE: after just a few hours, our HTTPS has be restored.
The Sensibility Testbed Hackaton at SAS 2014 Sensor Development Workshop in New Zealand was a big success!
It was a all day long workshop where we introduced the Sensibility Testbed for the first time to the public. The participants spent a few hours at our tutorial session, with step-by-step instructions to learn how to use the Sensibility Testbed to build mobile apps on phones and tablets donated by users to our testbed. The process is quite straight-forward: install our app from Google Play, download a command line tool, and deploy apps on other people’s devices. Participants can easily make each other’s device beep, vibrate, and speak! They can also do background measurement of data of their interest, like WiFi signal, Bluetooth interface, battery usage, and GPS, etc.
At the end of the workshop, all teams presented their apps with a 5-minute pitch and demo. The top team was from the University of Houston. They built an app that monitors the battery level and whether WiFi and Bluetooth are turned on. If battery is low, the app uses text to speech to tell the phone user to turn off his WiFi or Bluetooth. Other teams built exciting apps too, e.g., using accelerometer, GPS, and noise data. They really impressed us how fast they can learn, how creative they are, and how powerful Sensibility Testbed is.
