Traces is a software utility for recording data from Android smartphones and Android Wear smartwatches. The software records data from built-in accelerometers and gyroscopes, records ambient noise using built-in microphones, and logs received Bluetooth low energy (BLE) packets. Traces was designed with the aim to analyse wearers' localized physical activity and social interactions, where localization is supported by Eddystone BLE beacons. Within the BESiDE project, traces is used to gather objective data on the impact of the care home built environment on physical activity and social interactions of residents in elderly care. It is available for others to use under a free-to-use MIT licence.
