Wearable sensor data repository


Please support us!


One of our objectives is to establish an open data repository for wearable sensor data in order to facilitate the development of methods for sensor data analysis.

To achieve this aim, we need your support. Please donate sensor data sets along with a brief description about the parameters measured as well as the subjects. Please contact the WG chairs.


As a first step, a number of exemplary data sets from different accelerometers/ multi-sensor systems are available below. If you want to use these data sets, please notify the WG chair and refer to the following paper:

Marschollek M. A semi-quantitative method to denote generic physical activity phenotypes from long-term accelerometer data – the ATLAS index. Accepted for publication in PLOS ONE, 2013


SenseWear Pro2 data sets, time stamped in minutes starting from the first value of the file (please sort according to your needs):

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9



The following data sets each exceed the size of 1 GB. To obtain these, please send a data carrier medium (e.g. USB stick) to the following address:
