The goal of this project is to develop a library to more freely manipulate the sensors on Android devices. Currently, a simplistic library has been constructed revolving around sensors controlled by a built-in Android class with the slight additions of the microphone and the GPS. The library is being tooled into an application that saves sensor data in three different ways:

  • Writes sensor data to a file
  • Writes sensor data to SQLite database
  • Uploads sensor data to a server

The first are currently implemented and the second is not.

The current iteration of the application gives the user a variety of fourteen sensors to opt to log data with (after specifying sampling rate for the individual sensors). For more advanced sensors with more settings than sampling rate, there will be a menu to edit their preferences.

A more detailed website with pictures and a current version of the app will be coming soon.
