Amulet and Auracle: Wearable Platforms for mHealth Research

Abstract

The advent of mobile and wearable computing technology has made it increasingly possible for individuals to wear devices that can sense their physiology or health-related behaviors, collecting valuable data in support of diagnosis, treatment, public health, or other applications. In this talk, we describe two research-grade platforms developed in our lab: Amulet and Auracle.  The Amulet platform is an open-hardware, open-software wrist-worn computing device designed specifically for mHealth applications; we provide an overview of the platform and of several applications to research. The Auracle is a wearable earpiece that can automatically recognize eating behavior. More specifically, in free-living conditions, Auracle seeks to recognize when and for how long a person is eating. Our experiments show Auracle can achieve accuracy exceeding 92.8% and F1 score exceeding 77.5% for eating detection. Moreover, Auracle successfully detected 20-24 eating episodes (depending on the metrics) out of 26 in free-living conditions.
