This project would only be successful with your help. We invite your participation to collect data at any place and at any time. There are about 600 students in the Department and if everyone collects 10 data, we would have 6000 data every day! We will write paper to report the findings. We will promote the project to other universities throughout the world. Researchers can also download the raw data for their own studies while quoting the source from SY MediaLab. This is a valuable promotion of the Department and Shue Yan through this project. However, all these depend on your participation.

We thank SY MediaLab Mr. Ng Sek Ming develops the app, and for the last three months has been continuously updating the app.

Best wishes,

Will W. K. Ma
