Data Capture Lab

The first step of creating a sensor application is going to be collecting and labeling raw sensor data into events of interest through the Data Capture Lab (DCL).

The Data Capture Lab is an application that helps you capture and label raw data from the sensor and transform it into the events you want your application to detect.

At SensiML we have designed the DCL to speed up the process of collecting and annotating data. The DCL will play a key role in helping you to create and curate a high-quality dataset.

Projects

A project contains all your collected sensor data and algorithms. Your sensor data is saved to your local computer and synced with the cloud. Only your team has access to your data. This allows you to have multiple people collecting/labeling data on a project at the same time.

Creating a Project

  1. Open the Data Capture Lab and Log in to your account

  2. Click New project…

Optional: You can change the default project directory location. This will be where your projects get saved

Uploading a Project

If you downloaded the example Slide Demo dataset you can upload it to your account by following the steps below.

Note

The Slide Demo dataset is a simple Hello World style dataset to go through the basics of how to use the SensiML Toolkit. We also provide more interesting datasets including audio, wearable, and predictive maintenance applications which you can find in the SensiML Data Depot.

  1. Open the Data Capture Lab and Log in to your account

  2. Click Upload project
