Abstract

This paper describes the motivation for, and overarching design of, an open-source hardware and software system to enable population-scale, longitudinal measurement of physical activity and sedentary behavior using common mobile phones. The "Wockets" data collection system permits researchers to collect raw motion data from participants who wear multiple small, comfortable sensors for 24 hours per day, including during sleep, and monitor data collection remotely.
