MITes: Wireless portable sensors for studying behavior

Emmanuel Munguia Tapia, N. Marmasse, Stephen Intille, Kent Larson


We present MITes (MIT Environmental Sensors): a portable kit of ubiquitous wireless sensing devices for real-time data collection of human activities in natural settings. The sensors designed to be used in two ways: (1) determining people's interaction with objects in the environment, and (2) measuring acceleration on different parts of the body. The sensors have been designed to permit low-cost research studies where data is acquired simultaneously from hundreds of objects in an environment and multiple parts of the body.
