Open source software helps researchers extract key insights from huge sensor datasets

Read the full story from Saarland University.

Professor Andreas Schütze and his team of experts in measurement and sensor technology at Saarland University have released a free data processing tool called simply Dave—is a MATLAB toolbox that allows rapid evaluation of signals, pattern recognition and data visualization when processing huge datasets. The free software enables very large volumes of data, such as those produced by modern sensor systems, to be processed, analysed and visually displayed so that researchers can optimize their measurement systems interactively.

Members of the research team will be at Hannover Messe from the 1st to the 5th of April (Hall 2, Stand B46) where they will explain their open source software. The source code of the MATLAB toolbox “Dave—Data Analysis and Verification/Visualization/Validation Environment’ has been published at http://www.lmt.uni-saarland.de/dave

The software tool is available under a copyleft licence. Under copyleft rules, any adaptations of the original work, such as changes or enhancements are also bound by the same licence that covers the original work. “Anyone may use the open source software, provided that when results are published, the authors make reference to Dave,” says Schütze.
