In this paper we present a comprehensive architecture to carry out experimental repeatability studies on clusters of smartphones. Our architecture is founded on Smart Lab, our in-house architecture for managing real and virtual smartphones via an intuitive Web user interface. Our presented 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 test bed 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.
