Our perspective is computer science computer engineering: software, networking protocols, some hardware. We are not interested in antennas, signal processing etc. I EE majors are, of course welcome to the class. Every year, we choose a different topic. Previously we had: I Ad hoc networks I Sensor networks I Sensor networks from an agent perspective Lotzi B¨ol¨oni (School of EECS) Introduction January 9, 2010 2 / 16 This year’s topic: urban sensing How to use the ubiquitous personal devices I best example being smartphones I ... but also cameras, watches, personal health monitors etc. to sense our environment collect , validate , integrate and secure the data and deliver it to interested customers, either centralized or distributed. Also known as participatory sensing , urban computing etc. Lotzi B¨ol¨oni (School of EECS) Introduction January 9, 2010 3 / 16 Example 1: real time distributed environment monitoring monitor the level of allergens in areas around the city use the cell phone’s sensor to sense the data distribute the information I to centralized locations where a map is created I peer to peer to people who are interested Challenges How do we know that people are interested?...
