AutoWake came out of a need for us to stay awake at important classes or meetings that we kept dozing at, even though we knew we should be paying attention to them. Basically, AutoWake is a Pebble smartwatch app that uses the accelerometer of the Pebble to detect when you are starting to fall asleep. When it senses that you are not moving very much, it will automatically vibrate or ring your phone in order to wake you up. We also built a companion Android app that controls all of the settings for AutoWake, including starting/quitting the app, whether to have vibration on, sound on, or both, what threshold of motion the vibration/ringing should start at, and the time delay between each vibration/ringing.
