    4444== Why Sensibility Testbed ==  
    4545 
    46 First, in our testbed, device owners participate as volunteers, and researchers request these devices through our server. This server, which is called a clearinghouse, mediates remote device access, but does not store any personal data. As a result, Sensibility Testbed relieves researchers from recruiting participants and allows different groups to share all the devices participated in the testbed. Additionally, Sensibility Testbed does not require researchers to write full-fledged Android apps to perform experiments. Instead, it provides an easy-to-use Python-like programming interface. Last but not the least, using Sensibility Testbed, device owners do not need to trust the researchers who run code on their devices. As you will see later in this article, Sensibility Testbed provides a secure, sandboxed environment for anyone to run experiment code on Android devices. This can effectively prevent potential security and privacy breaches.
