Summary

The focus of the project "SmartQoE: Measurement Concept and Trendscouting for QoE in Mobile Context" is on three major goals:

1. Development of a measurement concept to measure QoE-relevant application data with a smartphone app

- Transparent logging of QoE-relevant application data for YouTube video streaming in  Android web browsers.
- Transmission of logged data to web server.
- Design of user interface for easy and intuitive usage of app by test users.

2. Analysis of collected data

- Analysis of QoE challenges from application data.
- Analysis of correlations of data from measurement app and other available data (e.g.,   other measurement apps, release dates, changelogs).

3. Trendscouting

- Estimation of potential for new research topics on QoE.
- Study of network requirements and quality indicators of upcoming apps and devices.
- Conduction of preliminary experiments.
