Wireless Sensor Network: Deployment In Mobile Phones Environment |

Muskan, in International Journal of Information Technology and Management | IT & Management


Wireless sensor networkshave been widely deployed to perform sensing constantly at specific locations,but their energy consumption and deployment cost are of great concern [8]. Withthe popularity and advanced technologies of mobile phones, participatory urbansensing is a rising and promising field which utilizes mobile phones as mobilesensors to collect data, though it is hard to guarantee the sensing quality andavailability under the dynamic behaviors and mobility of human beings. Based onthe above observations, we suggest that wireless sensors and mobile phones cancomplement each other to perform collaborative sensing efficiently withsatisfactory quality and availability. The deployment becomes a challengebecause participatory sensing processes are dynamic and wireless sensornetworks are relatively static.
