Project description
The AWARE project created an cross-disciplinary research to attain a better understanding of human behavior by analysing the users’ context and social wellbeing. It is openly available to all researchers in the world (, and to industry. In this project, AWARE was tested and evaluated in different research studies in close collaboration with many international universities (e.g., Carnegie Mellon University, Dartmouth College, Cambridge, MIT, Cornell, Georgia Tech and many more). AWARE is a secure, highly distributed and scalable platform where non-technical researchers can create and use different devices' sensor data, including surveys, to study different research questions. It is now used for elderly-care, tracking Parkinson's disease, and to minimise chemotherapy side-effects for cancer treatments.
