BehaviorCloud allows the collection, analysis, and sharing of research data on a unified cloud platform. As opposed to traditional mediums of collection and analysis that is usually limited to a single device/system, BehaviorCloud allows the opportunity of remote connectivity to the experiments and the data. By using a secured cloud-based system, researchers can collaborate and share data anytime and anywhere without the worry of security. Furthermore, BehaviorCloud is compatible with Android and iOS mobile devices and can be used on multiple devices. Apart from the shareability and connectivity features, the platform allows researchers to take full advantage of cloud data streaming and storage.
In addition to allowing live streaming of the experiments, BehaviorCloud also offers the option of automated tracking of animal movements. Tracked behaviors of tasks such as Elevated Plus Maze and Open-Field Test can then be used to generate a range of data such as average velocity, number of visits and latencies. For more complex behaviors such as nesting and walking, the platform comes equipped with the augmented manual scoring feature. In many cases, no additional equipment is required in order to use BehaviorCloud and you can get started in minutes.
