The Internet System for Networked Sensor Experimentation (iSENSE) is web system for collaborative scientific inquiry. The iSENSE site enables users to describe their own scientific experiments, upload and share data, and create and save dynamic data visualizations.
I have designed and created a single-purpose Android application, named Car Ramp Physics, that collects Y-accelerometer data at a rate of 20 Hz for 10 seconds of a vehicle traveling across a plane or incline. Upon choosing to upload the data to the iSENSE site, users can statistically analyze their data using one of iSENSE’s many visualization features, including a table, histogram, scatter plot, and more. They may also compare their data with data from other sessions, including those uploaded by other users.
