Abstract

The ubiquity of mobile technology has opened the door to the new era of mobile sensing. Through this new paradigm, physical phenomena can be observed in a distributed way, crowd-sourcing the data measurement tasks to smartphones and/or other popular smart wearables. Mobile sensing and wireless communications can hence be employed to gather data and generate new information and services, benefiting our society. As a proof-of-concept, we have developed a mobile sensing platform able to pervasively collect environmental data. To improve the quality of collected data we have also created an application for pedestrian navigation that works both on smartphones (also using Augmented Reality) and on smartwatches, thus ensuring an appropriate exposition of the mobile device (and its sensors) when collecting data. Furthermore, our navigation app is able to provide users with personalized pedestrian routes that take into account environmental parameters and not only the route length. Finally, we have also devised a web service able to provide graphical visualization and historical evolution of sensed data.
