Crowd-sensing is an approach involving a large, spread out group of participants using mobile devices with the aim of receiving reliable data from the field. This approach has been used both in industry and multiple research studies, including traffic and road monitoring (geo-crowdsourcing), urban mobility, smart cities, social networking, healthcare, safety, environmental and ecological monitoring, and others.

The rapid emergence of mobile devices, such as smartphones and wearables, usually with a rich array of sensors, enables a new means of acquiring sensor data, known as crowd-sensing. Together with the intrinsic mobility of their users, the ability to acquire local knowledge from people’s immediate environment or even themselves is gained. Crowd-sensing is useful, not only to industry but also different research communities that have an interest in collecting a new class of data over a much larger scope of area and people than was previously possible. It is also an attractive approach for companies looking to collect data without high investment costs.

Some use cases

  1. Environmental monitoring
  2. Ganga river monitoring
  3. Wild dump reporting and controlling

Environmental monitoring

This is an application that helps collect and sort all kinds of environmental monitoring data, regardless of the data source (volunteers, automated stations, data collected internally). Free forms, questionnaires, audio, video, and sensors can all be combined with satellite imagery and displayed in a user-friendly way.

Take a look at some of the screenshots below.

Not that long ago we were present at the India Water Impact Summit 2017. We were asked how CrowdSensing could be used to report pollution around the Ganga River. In just a few hours we produced a simple demo application that shows exactly that.

What does the demo app support?
Reading sensor data (location, environment data, etc.), recording video (to have a visual confirmation), an easy to use form, and optionally WebRTC audio/video conferencing (for live reporting). All collected data can be transmitted to the cloud in real time or on-demand (if there is no connectivity on location).

Take a look at some screenshots of the demo application below.
