Basic Information

Overview

The FluPhone study, by Cambridge researchers, has developed a new tool to study behavior and its consequences using mobile phones. The application in the mobile phone will monitor influenza-like symptoms by prompting questions for the mobile phone owner. It will also capture physical proximity information between individuals by recording other devices nearby via Bluetooth communication.
