In this thesis, a project is described that is aimed at collecting data, that could be indicators of alcohol intoxication. The project consists of an application that can be installed on a smartphone, which when used will unobtrusively collect data.

Besides typing sensors, acceleration is also tracked to see if this can indicate alcohol intoxication.
