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 data set.



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.

Uploading a Project

We are going to use the Slide Demo project for this tutorial. In order to use the slide demo project, you need to upload it to your account. You can do this by following the steps below.


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.
