With the understanding that many users require data capture solutions which allow for greater mobility we now offer Multi Shimmer Sync for Android. Multi Shimmer Sync for Android is a mobile device based application which allows for the configuration of and synchronised data capture from multiple Shimmer units.
The application is ideal for users looking to develop applications where simultaneous data capture from a number of units is required, and interpretation and analysis requires the data to be synchronised with a high level of accuracy (synchronisation error of the order of milliseconds).
With a range of features and data capture tools users can select sampling rate, detect and notify of dropped packets, save and load application settings for future use, annotate data, and name Shimmer units to ensure functionality, efficiency, and ease of use in data capture.
The application is limited to use with 7 Shimmer units as this is the upper limit for Bluetooth radio communication with a single radio dongle. However, the number of Shimmers which can be supported by the application depend on a number of factors such as the sampling rate, the number of data signals being captured, and the processing capabilities of the Android device.
