Title: Mobile Crowd Sensing and Its Application in Smart City
ABSTRACT：Mobile crowd sensing is a new paradigm that takes advantage of pervasive mobile devices to efficiently collect data, thus enable numerous novel IoT applications. Recently, it has been widely used for sensing the urban environments and providing smart public services further. In this talk, we first introduce the characteristics of mobile crowd sensing, and analyze the challenges of mobile crowd sensing. Combing our on-going project, we present some researches on sensing quality measure, opportunistic routing, incentive mechanism, and some typical applications in smart city. Finally, we discuss the open issues and outline the future works on Internet of Things.
