  • App Store Info


Context Logger is an application helping researchers/iphone developers and interested users to record and interpret accelerometer data. During the recording of gestures or movements one can label the records so that it's easy to distinguish the different parts of a signal at a later point. The user can create up to six different labels for each recording. Additionally there's a live view that allows the user to watch the data on a real-time graph. The application also offers an integrated web server for uploading the records to any computer that's connected to the same network as the iPhone/iPod touch. For users without any experience in the field of signal recording and signal analysis there is also a 'Getting Started' guide which might be helpful.

The program was developed by Tobias Franke during the process of writing his diploma thesis at the Embedded Systems Lab of the University of Passau. Therefore it must be said that we cannot provide customer service like a dedicated software company would do. Nevertheless you are more than welcome to share your thoughts on our website. As we only use Macs/Linux at our lab we weren't able to test the upload function on many other platforms - however it should be working just fine.

What's New in Version 1.1

the context logger supports now recording all sensor modalities of the devices, adding sound, location and gyro (where available) to the mix.

Also couchdb upload as advanced feature, just enter the couchdb url in the upload field.
