Current State of Mobile Crowd Sensing

0 Comment

The devices consist of certain sensing equipment and wireless power that make it easier to develop and upload data to the internet (Ganti et al. Page 32). The mobile devices are equipped with various communication computing and sensing systems. They boost the functions of the daily life objects or involved in the collection of information from the environment by themselves. These devices have got applications in all sectors of the economy including health sector, industrial sector, agricultural sector and education sectors. Information sharing and updating have become easier and the information have been of high quality. The paper therefore discusses in broad the current state of art of mobile Crowdsensing looking into the current application in technology. It also discusses the possible future advances and challenges facing this technology.The mobile crowdsensing applications fall into two broad categories considering the type of facts that are analyzed. personal and computing sensing. The application of personal sensing is directed towards the individual. A good example is examining the movement of individuals, especially during exercise to determine his or her health status. Another example is the one that examines the method of transportation of an individual in order to get the carbon footprint of the person. Community sensing involves examination of facts that cannot be carried out by one person. A good example is the examination of the level of air pollution or traffic congestion. It has therefore been made easier to carry out self or community assessment. One can easily identify and know the body status and decide on whether to seek medical assistance at certain times (Ganti et al.Page 32).The current state of the art of mobile crowdsensing has shown its applications in various sectors in the world. Its application has been seen in the environment, infrastructure and social applications. The environmental applications involve the natural environment including examining pollution levels, wildlife habitats and levels of water. These applications involve looking the facts in the environment at a large and involved the main person.
