Abstract. New kinds of data collection like GPS-tracking, wearable sensors and mobile apps impose both technical and privacy challanges for medical research. In the MOPS study (''Machbarkeitsstudie f\"ur Ortsbezogene Parameter und Sensordaten'' - feasibility study for geocoded parameters and sensor data) we provide participants with a newly developed app and sensors for various physical and environmental parameters. We want to explore the feasibility of the recently established Medical Research Platform of the Medical Faculty of the University of Leipzig and similar platforms for this kind of data collection and processing.
