At iMotions, we are fortunate to have created a software platform that can be applied to a wide spectrum of human behavior research using biosensor technology. This has led to the immense privilege of having customers from all over the world and from a host of different avenues of research. iMotions users’ work ranges from automotive simulations to UX testing to clinical psychology – and everything in between – and researchers use our software as the foundation for their groundbreaking research.
We have always prided ourselves on being more than just a software development company. In fact, we see ourselves equally as a research enablement company. Being able to enable our customers and end-users to conduct the best possible research has always been one of the foundational pillars of the iMotions company model. Our in-house experts have guided, helped, and troubleshot for thousands of customers since the company’s inception. Now we feel the time is perfect to open up the floor and give every iMotions user the chance to share their knowledge to help their peers.
Bringing the research world together
Our in-house experts are one of the great values of iMotions, but that expertise pales in comparison to the combined experience and expertise of the host of researchers, data collectors, and analysts all over the world who use our software on a daily basis. At iMotions, we see that combined global expertise as one of the largest and most valuable resources in the field of biometric research.
In short, we are the gatekeepers of the potentially largest biosensor research community in the world. That is why we have decided to create a place where that expertise can be utilized and shared, namely the iMotions Global Research Community.
With the creation of this community, we open up for collaboration and networking opportunities, knowledge sharing, and insights into what research is being conducted all around the world which will hopefully empower and inspire our users to take their research to new heights. The community consists of a Research Map and an online forum for iMotions users to explore their global network. Here are some details about the features:
The Research Map is a visual representation and networking resource on which you will be able to see universities and labs all over the world using iMotions. You can easily view what research they are focusing on, what sensors and technologies their lab is equipped with, and how to get in touch with the lead researcher or lab manager. Additionally, it will display the lab’s highlighted publications and whether or not the labs or universities are open to receiving visitors.
When you become an iMotions customer your lab or university will get an entry on the map where you can showcase your work and share how you would like to be contacted to collaborate on research, recruit new students or coworkers who are versed in biosensor research or meet others in your area.
If you are already an iMotions customer who would like to be featured on the map, please write to the community team here.
The community forum is where knowledge sharing, methodology discussions, tips and tricks, and script sharing can take place. We are invested in creating a space where knowledge can flow freely to the benefit of all users and clients and we have created a space where experiences, insights, and solutions can be shared, discussed, and built upon.
Our in-house experts will have a strong presence on the forum, which will function as a community hub where they will engage with users on an equal footing. We would be hubristic if we assumed that we knew all the answers to all the questions our clients could ever ask. On the other hand, we are sure that most answers will exist in the community so it only makes sense to open up the discussion.
What to expect in the future
We are working on even more interesting and helpful new features to be added to continuously increase the value of our new offering. What these features will be we cannot say at this point, but we will surely communicate it as soon as they are available.
