Lesson 2F – Participatory Sensing

This lesson introduces participatory sensing (PS), systems in which individuals serve as monitor points within their own communities to provide resources that are only available as the result of distributed data collection.

Learning Objectives
  • Define Participatory Sensing (PS)
  • Provide examples of PS systems
  • Describe a typical architecture for a PS system
  • Identify threats to privacy and potential countermeasures to reduce the risk associated with those threats
