Introduction - Objectives Demonstrating  the feasibility of the mobile sensing  approach including the design, implementation and  evaluation of the system Proposing and evaluating a method of environmental  fingerprinting to increase location accuracies Showing that if the mobility system were currently attached  to operating taxis, it would operate with enough samples to  determine parking availability
