Context Triggers

Triggering on sensor data

Jeeves allows triggers based on sensor data, for ‘Context-Sensitive Ecological Momentary Assessment (CS-EMA)’. One such feature is the ability to perform actions when users arrive, leave, or dwell in a specified location. This can be useful for setting reminders for when a user gets home, for example. Or it could be used to ask users about their experience in a particular location.

Other triggers are possible based on the user’s activity data, background noise, or sending/receiving of SMS messages.

Starting and stopping sensors

The ‘start/stop sensing’ action turns a specified sensor on or off. Although activity, microphone and location data are all useful, they can affect the user’s battery and so their use should be controlled with these actions.
