COPELABS and Senception delivered two demonstrations at ACM MOBICOM 2016.

Recommendations over Wi-Fi.

DDicas is a tool that relies on Wi-Fi fencing to perform user recommendations concerning local events or activities. DDicas has the following advantages: low-cost; no need to have constant Internet access; no need to have constant GPS access (works indoors and outdoors); advertisement provided based on interests, and not based on geo-fencing. DDicas is being developed by COPELABS in collaboration with Senception.

Small Group Safety Prevention.

PerSense Mobile Light is a tool developed by Senception to assist in research related with wireless roaming aspects. PerSense Mobile Light seamlessly captures wireless data (Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct) thus providing traces that the wireless research community can rely upon to better characterize wireless roaming habits, as well as daily social routines. Developed in the context of the H2020 UMOBILE project, PerSense Mobile Light is currently available as a beta tool - to have access to it, please register via the Google+ Pervasive Sensing Experimental Tools community.
