BeTelGeuse is a context data gathering tool for Bluetooth-capable platforms and sensor devices. It has been designed to be extendable to new sensors and to run on several platforms. BeTelGeuse does not analyze the collected data, but it offers ways for plugins and other programs to use the data. BeTelGeuse is published under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).


BeTelGeuse has been developed at the Basic Research Unit (BRU) of the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT, by the following group of researchers (in alphabetical order):
