This whitepaper provides an overview of mobile crowdsensing, as an extension to “participatory sensing” that tasks average citizens and volunteers to perform local knowledge gathering and sharing, in particular thanks to the use of mobile smart devices. The article describes existing examples from literature and related works, detailing how crowdsensing has already been adopted successfully in several different fields, which share the focus on the common good. Examples include existing systems aimed at the development of smart cities, life quality improvements for urban citizens, critical event management, social recommender systems, or road quality monitoring platforms, such as SmartRoadSense.
