Open Sensing Framework

The funf Open Sensing Framework is an Android-based extensible framework for doing phone-based mobile sensing. The core concept is to provide a reusable set of functionalities enabling the collection, uploading, and configuration for a wide range of data types.

Funf was originally designed as the underlying social and behavioral sensing platform of the Friends and Family Study. We have long wanted to release this codebase as an open framework that would help researchers, developers, and individual self-trackers collect data in an easy and safe way, and leverage the experience we have gained through our field deployments. We recently received a grant through Google Health dedicated for doing just that - opening-up and extending the software platform.

There is still a lot of work ahead. We are currently working to implement the lessons we've learned, update the architecture, add a whole lot of documentation and tutorials, and many other things needed in the transition from an internal experimental platform to an a configurable, reusable, and extensible sensing framework.

For those of you who don't have the patience to wait, and following many requests to try out the platform, we decided to do an early release of a "sneak peek" version so that you could get a feel of funf while we work to refactor the full source code for public consumption. We will gradually be adding functionality and tutorials, and of course the source code...
