Evaluating Participation and Performance in Participatory Sensing [Conference Paper]

NESL Technical Report #: 2008-10-3


Abstract: Because participatory sensing – targeted campaigns where people harness mobile phones as tools for data collection – involves large and distributed groups of people, participatory sensing systems benefit from tools to measure and evaluate the contributions of individual participants. This paper develops a set of metrics to help participatory sensing organizers determine individual participants’ fit with any given sensing project, and describes experiments evaluating the resulting reputation system.
