PACT Datasets and Evaluation

Our mission is to aggregate datasets and provide an evaluation platform in support of the PACT mission statement.

BLE RSSI Various Static Configurations

This dataset contains ~30 second collects in various static configurations. Data was collected in various environments, with different phone carrying positions, and with different user rotations relative to the measurement device. Additionally, multiple measurement devices were used. All collects were done with 6' separation between the transmitting device and receiving device.

PACT Exposure Notification Beacons

This dataset of beacons, or transmissions between a sending and receiving phone running Exposure Notification Services (ENS), is meant to provide a tool for studying the path loss of the Bluetooth signal under certain conditions and its utility as a proxy for exposure levels.

Exposure Visualization Tool

An interactive GUI to visualize mobile contact-tracing testing with Exposure Notification (EN) apps. The scenarios visualized involve multiple agents (phone-carriers) in a scene with EN enabled on their phone, after which a "sick" agent shares its status and an alert of exposure may be received by the other agents.


A bluetooth proximity dataset collected varying distance between participants to be far (H0, >10ft) or close (H1, <6ft).

KRI Anechoic Chamber Dataset

Data collected using the nRF52 BTLE Sniffer and a custom program (located at

MIT Matrix Data

MIT Testing Protocol used. 10 data collections corresponding to MIT test data matrix. Each data folder contains log files for 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15 ft. The Bluetooth signal of interest is tagged with the name "BlueProxTx"

MITRE Range Angle (Structured)

This dataset contains measurements following the Range-Angle Collection Protocol collected by MITRE employees. For measurments using two iPhones, the BluetoothProximity app was used to broadcast the BLE advertisement from one device following the standard test protocol. For measurements using an iPhone and an Android device, the nRF Connect app was used on the Andriod device to broadcast the BLE advertisement.

MITRE Range Angle (Unstructured)

This dataset contains measurements similar to the the MITLL range-angle protocol, but taken in an unstructured manner. Unlike the range-angle protocol (Structured Contact Tracing Protocol, V.2.0), testers chose their own range, angle and number of tests per set. As a result the dataset does not contain complete range-angle sets, but there is more variety in environment, phone carrying position, pose, etc. The data was collected by 12 MITRE employees at their homes.

PACT Phones and Bluetooth Chipsets

This spreadsheet catalogs a wide range of commonly available phones and their Bluetooth chipsets based on openly available information as part of the PACT project. Please feel free to edit/add/enrich this data.

Range Angle

A bluetooth proximity dataset collected by varying range angle between participants.


This paper describes a data collection campaign and a dataset of BLE beacons for detecting and analyzing human social interactions. The dataset has been collected by involving 15 volunteers that interacted in indoor environments for a total of 11 hours of activity. The dataset is released as a collection of CSV files with a timestamp, RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) and a unique identifier of the emitting and of the receiving devices. Volunteers wear a wristband equipped with BLE tags emitting beacons at a fixed rate, and a mobile application able to collect and to store beacons.

Template Dataset

A template dataset to be used for external dataset submissions.

How to Submit a Dataset

If you have a dataset you are interested in seeing on this website please choose an option below to proceed.

Option 1 (preferred): Using Github Repositories

Please use this option if you are familiar with setting up a Github repository and if your dataset does not contain any single files that are larger than 4GB.

  1. Create a new repository using the PACT Template repository by following this link:
  2. Add your dataset to this new repository. You may (and should) alter the file. Also feel free to alter the or files but you should not remove them.
  3. Make an issue on the main PACT repository here:
    • tag your issue with the label Task: Dataset Submission
    • in your issue's description, include a link to the repository you created in Step 1
  4. The PACT Team will review your issue and attached dataset and will add it to the website or provide feedback as necessary

Option 2: Without Github Repositories

If you do not wish to use Github or your dataset is too large for Github's large file share (LFS) feature, please email the PACT Datasets and Evaluation team at with the dataset name and a brief description of how it was collected. Please either attach your dataset directly to the email or else provide a link to where it can be accessed by the PACT Team.
