During this workshop, we will organize a tutorial for using Sensibility Testbed on smartphones and tablets, and a group competition for sensor app development. Students will be encouraged to work with professors from different institutions to come up with new and exciting research ideas. Participants can test their ideas on Android phones owned by real users around the world (provided by the Sensibility Testbed). We also encourage participants to bring their own Android phone or tablet. Participants will be grouped in teams of 3–4 on a collaborative project to build an app in an afternoon. (We will help with team formation and will help each team include an outside faculty member.) Finally, each team will give a 5 minute pitch for their collaborative project. The SAS conference’s organizing committee will decide the competition winners. The resulting applications will be tested on a local devices and remote smartphones to demonstrate the functionality.
The selection criteria include:
● Impact of technology on society
● Utilization of Sensibility Testbed to build a novel application
● Completeness of implementation
Certificates will be given to the top three teams. Team members on the first place team will receive a new Android phone.
*Workshop time/date TBD.
