Participants needed for a study on wearable sensors

We are studying how different the measurements collected by wearable sensors are from vendor to vendor and how these differences affect the algorithms created to understand behaviors from the signals they collect (for example, walking and running recognition to count your daily steps). The results from this study will allow us to create algorithms that are less sensitive to small variabilities and noises.

We are currently recruiting participants for a data collection study involving doing a predefined set of activities in the PERFORM Centre carrying 12 different sensors. It will take around 1 hour.
