    • Docking Station: 04/21/2014
    • Monitor: 03/05/2014
  • Fix for networking issue that prevented log uploads.

Updates, changes, and bug fixes in the March 30th, 2015 release:

  • Firmware versions (unchanged from previous version)
    • Access Point: 03/04/2014
    • Docking Station: 04/21/2014
    • Monitor: 03/05/2014
  • Updated APA algorithm to improve detection.
  • Updated normative values to account for new APA calculations.
  • CSV exports now include the normative percentile for variability (CoV).
  • Update from Java 6 to Java 8 for security and performance reasons. The Java 8 runtime is bundled with the Windows and OSX versions, so no separate Java installation is necessary.
  • (Apple OSX only) If updating from an existing installation, you will have to either perform a clean installation (http://community.apdm.com/entries/22798697-Migrating-to-a-clean-Mobility-Lab-Installation) or install Java 8 separately (http://community.apdm.com/entries/62933620-Installing-Java-8-on-Mac-OSX).
  • Updates to USB libraries to improve USB 3.0 compatibility.
  • New iconography to improve consistency within the application and with APDM's branding as a whole.
  • Added ability to specify the file name format. This was a popular request from researchers who perform post processing the raw data files. You can now specify what information you want included in the file name (e.g., subject ID, test name, condition name, trial #, etc.).
  • (Apple OSX only) We updated to a more recent version of the application platform Mobility Lab is built upon (Eclipse RCP). This resolves some OSX issues such as the inability to use the file/folder picker more than once per application launch.
  • (Apple OSX only) We updated the downloadable software application to make it more consistent with other OSX applications:
    • It is self contained within an Apple app package (shows up as a single icon in your Applications directory)
    • It is bundled as a DMG image instead of a ZIP archive. Double click to mount, and drag the application icon to the Applications shortcut within the Finder window that opens.
  • Fixes to the Videography integration to make it more robust.
  • Fix for issue with synchronization with external systems, where there was a synchronization offset equal to the current latency of the wireless stream (typically about 300ms).

Updates, changes, and bug fixes in the October 20th, 2014 current release:

  • Firmware versions (unchanged from previous version)
    • Access Point: 03/04/2014
    • Docking Station: 04/21/2014
    • Monitor: 03/05/2014
  • Fix for misplaced header in PDF reports (header was removed, as this was an issue with 3rd party software).
  • Can now add ICTSIB trials to an existing ICTSIB session from within the Trials tab.
  • Fix for bug where sessions and trials would sometimes be out of order (they are sorted by creation date).
  • Fix where "Include in Analysis" property was not being propagated through an export/import cycle.
  • Fix for "No Trials to Process" bug when validating trials if report/export filters are set.

Warnings and Known Issues

  • As part of the new test and test sequence manager (beginning with the August 19th, 2014 release), any existing custom test types currently in use will automatically be migrated over into the new version. Existing test sequences (e.g., 3 ITUG + 3 ISWAY) will not be, however. Creating these sequences is easy with the editor.
  • For OSX users, there is a bug where a file/folder picker will only work the FIRST time you try to use it. Subsequent attempts to open the file/folder picker will fail until Mobility Lab has been closed and reopened. This is a known bug with the application framework we use (Eclipse RCP). We will include a fix for this in the next release. Let us know if this is a significant thorn in your side.
