Abstract: Sensors on (or attached to) mobile phones can enable attractive sensing applications in different domains such as environmental monitoring, social networking, healthcare, etc. In this talk, I will introduce a new concept, Sensing-as-a-Service, i.e., providing sensing services using mobile phones via a cloud computing system. A Sensing-as-a-Service cloud should meet the following requirements: 1)It must be able to support various mobile phone sensing applications on different smartphone platforms. 2) It must be energy-efficient. 3) It must have effective incentive mechanisms that can be used to attract mobile users to participate in sensing activities. I will identify unique challenges of designing and implementing a Sensing-as-a-Service cloud, review existing systems and methods, present viable solutions, and point out future research directions.
