NubiS is a complete data collection tool that has been developed by the team behind the Understanding America Study (UAS) panel at the Center for Economic and Social Research at the University of Southern California. NubiS runs on any server, pc, laptop or netbook as well as on android tablets or smartphones.
The NubiS system includes all the traditional modes of data collection like self-administered, face-to-face, and telephone interviewing. NubiS can also collect continuous information from smartphones, tablets or other external devices like accelerometers, GPS devices, blood pressure meters and other biomedical devices. This information can be combined with survey data and for example used to prompt or ask questions to respondents.
