The phones can easily be used to collect all kinds of information. They are easily accessible by many people and are always on. This provides an opportunity to automatically display questions on the phone display and can be quickly answered, with little inconvenience. This would be useful for collecting data on simple votes, to engagement surveys and quizzes. Once the survey is complete the data can be viewed and if necessary published, allowing all the participants to view the results of the survey.


Operational Overview

The user’s interaction with the phone results in key-value pairs being passed back to the server for processing.
