For a great documentary about the OAR Northwest team that Alessia Knauss and Angela Rook have been collaborating on research with over the last two years, check out the following: http://www.nbcnews.com/dateline/full-episode-capsized-n80451
The SEGAL lab received great news yesterday: one of the three smartphones that our ToTEM system was implemented on survived being capsized! We have yet to determine what data survived on the smartphone. However, a recent project by Angela Rook determined that it is possible to get strong results through data mining with a subset of even just 15 days of consistently collected data. Given that the rowers of OAR Northwest were on the water for 73 days, we have high hopes that we will be able to extract sufficient data for statistically significant research results. We are so grateful to OAR Northwest for recovering this smartphone for us. We are excited to examine the data collected when it arrives at the Lab.
