Pack&Go is a remote experiment testing and data collection solution under development by VPixx Technologies. Pack&Go runs MATLAB/Psychtoolbox experiments developed by the vision and psychology research communities. The Pack&Go solution provides a high-performance computer architecture for executing Psychtoolbox code remotely. A vetted participant equipped with the correct links and credentials can access the experiment online and stream it to their browser on demand. The participant's technological requirements are relatively low: the participant will not need to download files to their device or meet specific hardware requirements aside from having a stable internet connection. Pack&Go records data files generated during the execution of the scripts programmed by the researcher, including formats such as .csv and .mat. The data files are stored on a secure server alongside anonymized participant information and information about the network's quality during the data collection session. When one or more participants have completed the online study, the experiment manager can download the data locally and analyze it, much in the same way as if the researcher had run the experiment on a local computer.
The satellite session's objective is to demonstrate the project's current state in a live demo and obtain early feedback from the community.
This session is for VSS attendees who were unable to join us on Friday.
You will receive the satellite session link in your registration confirmation email.
