This project aims to explore and evaluate the use of
Participatory sensing allows people carrying everyday mobile devices to act as
sensor nodes and form a sensor network with other such devices. A large number
of mobile phones, PDAs, laptops and cars equipped with sensors and GPS receivers
exist which could be used in participatory sensing applications. The
network of such devices can interact like any sensor network to collect and
share local data or be part of a larger scale network, for example the sensor
network could be queried through internet.
