▲▲▲ Collects data from all the iPhone sensors ▲▲▲
This is the sensor data collection app for people who are serious about their data collection. Used widely across both commercial and academic labs. Easy to use, accurate, and captures data from all of the IOS sensors.
▲ The latest app within the Wavefront Labs Data Collection series. The often requested, long-awaited app that collects and integrates all sensors, including the i3D Gyro data.
▲ Collects data from all the sensors including the 3D Gyro
▲ Integrates the 3D Accelerometer data with the 3D gyro data to provide accurate attitude, rotation, and user acceleration data.
▲ Collects data from the GPS including location, altitude, speed, and course.
▲ Collects data from the proximity sensor
Data collected includes:
▲ 3D Accelerometer: X, Y, Z acceleration
▲ 3D Magnetometer and Compass
▲▲ Magnetic and true heading
▲▲ 3D magnetic fields (microTeslas)
▲ Integrated Accelerometer and Gyro data
▲▲ Attitude: pitch, roll, yaw
▲▲ Attitude: Quaternion
▲▲ Attitude: 3x3 rotation matrix
▲▲ Gravitational acceleration X, Y, Z vector
▲▲ User acceleration X, Y, Z vector
▲▲ Rotation rate
▲ Location and GPS
▲▲ Latitude / longitude
▲▲ Course / speed
▲ Proximity Sensor
** Two collection Modes **
▲ Capture Mode - Captures data to files stored within the device Flash filesystem.
▲ Streaming Mode - Real-time sensor data streamed to another computer with UDP packets.
▲▲ Other Features
▲ Supports data file transfer through iTunes File Sharing
▲ Internal web server allowing you to easily view and transfer collected sensor data files to another computer.
▲ Library manager within the app to allow you to easily view and manage captured sensor data within the app.
▲ Configurable sample rates from 1 to 100 Hertz.
▲ Configurable number of samples
▲ Data captured and transferred as CSV (comma separated) values for easy integration into spreadsheets and other data analysis software.
Note: Some devices don't have all sensors.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Resolved a problem with requesting permission to use the GPS data in some cases that was causing no GPS data to be collected in the app for some people.
Ratings and Reviews
The app works well in that it successfully streams upd data to a target device, however, it does not remember the IP address and unicasr mode, this wouldn’t be so bad but the app often crashes. This makes it near impossible to use without getting upset!
Labelling of captured data
The file name for captured data reflects the time the data was captured. There is no way of naming this data more intelligently to support later works e.g. If I want to capture data about climbing up a staircase I should be able to identify this data by naming it something that will make me know its purpose e.g. Staircase_climbup_0712......csv
Seems to work fine
Just tried this app for the first time. It appears to do exactly as promised and simply writes data channels to a CSV file which you can then download using iTunes. Ideal for what I need.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
