AndWellness: an open mobile system for activity and experience sampling


Advances in mobile phone technology have allowed phones to become a convenient platform for real-time assessment of a participants health and behavior. AndWellness, a personal data collection system, uses mobile phones to collect and analyze data from both active, triggered user experience samples and passive logging of onboard environmental sensors. The system includes an application that runs on Android based mobile phones, server software that manages deployments and acts as a central repository for data, and a dashboard front end for both participants and researchers to visualize incoming data in real-time. Our system has gone through testing by researchers in preparation for deployment with participants, and we describe an initial qualitative study plus several planned future studies to demonstrate how our system can be used to better understand a user's health related habits and observations.
