Coordinating Measurements for Air Pollution Monitoring in Participatory Sensing Settings
Environmental monitoring is important, as it allows authorities to understand the impact of potentially harmful environmental phenomena, such as air pollution, noise or temperature, on public health. To achieve this effectively, participatory sensing is a promising paradigm for large-scale data collection. In this approach, ordinary citizens (non-expert contributors) collect environmental data using low-cost mobile devices. However, these participants are generally selfinterested agents having their own goals and making local decisions about where and when to take measurements, if any at all. This can lead to a highly inefficient outcome, where observations are either taken redundantly or do not provide sufficient information about key areas of interest. To address these challenges, a coordination system is necessary to guide and to coordinate participants. This paper proposes such a participatory sensing framework and presents a novel algorithm based on entropy and mutual informatio...
