In this demonstration paper we present SmartLab, an architecture for managing a cluster of both Android Real Devices (ARDs) and Android Virtual Devices (AVDs) via an intuitive web-based interface. Our architecture consists of several exciting components for re-programming and instrumenting smartphones to perform application testing and data gathering in a facile manner, as well as executing mockup experiments by "feeding" the devices with GPS/sensor readings. We will particularly demonstrate the various components of our architecture that encompasses smartphone sensor data collected by mobile users and organized in our distributed NoSQL document store. The given datasets can then be replayed on our testbed comprising of real and virtual smartphones accessible to developers through our Web 2.0 user interface. We present the applicability of our architecture through various mockup experiments over different application scenarios.
