To start using Sense.DAT you need login data. These will be provided to you from the mobility research project you will be participating in. After downloading and installing Sense.DAT and logging in, Sense.DAT will automatically start measuring your outdoor travel.
You do not need to activate or deactivate Sense.DAT. Your trips will appear automatically when you open the app. Sense.DAT uses the sensors in your iPhone to detect where and when you travelled, by what mode and which route. It offers a daily travel overview including statistics that can be accessed through a calendar.
Each trip can be viewed, approved and, if necessary, corrected by the user. In this way highly accurate and complete travel diaries can be obtained with little effort.
Sense.DAT includes self-learning algorithms to detect habitual patterns in behaviour. In this way the App will automatically detect frequently used routes and frequently visited places. These self-learning algorithms will over time lead to fewer corrections and more efficient battery use during measurements.
