Large-scale activity monitoring is a core component of systems aiming to improve our ability to manage fitness, deliver care, and diagnose conditions. While much research has been devoted to the accurate classification of motion, the challenges arising from scaling to large communities have received little attention. This paper introduces the problem of scaling, and addresses two of the most important issues: enabling robust large-scale ground-truth acquisition and building a common database for systems comparison. This paper presents a voice powered mobile acquisition system with efficient annotation tools and an extendable online searchable activity database with 331 datasets totaling over 700 h with 8 sensing modalities and 15 activities.
