Guest editorial: special issue on mobile crowdsourcing

Bin Guo, Xing Xie, Raghu K. Ganti, Daqing Zhang, Zhu Wang
2018 World wide web (Bussum)  
Crowdsourcing is evolving into a new paradigm, i.e., Mobile Crowdsourcing (MCS), which facilitates the increasing number of mobile device users to participate crowdsourcing tasks.  ...  As a result, quite a number of crowdsourcing tasks that are difficult to complete based on Internet crowdsourcing has now become feasible, e.g., monitoring pollution level or noise level at the city-scale  ...  In "GP-selector: a generic participant selection framework for mobile crowdsourcing systems", the authors develop a generic framework to handle participant selection from the perspective of both task creators  ...

HyTasker: Hybrid Task Allocation in Mobile Crowd Sensing [article]

Jiangtao Wang, Feng Wang, Yasha Wang, Leye Wang, Zhaopeng Qiu, Daqing Zhang, Bin Guo, Qin Lv
2018 arXiv   pre-print
In particular, when selecting opportunistic workers in the offline phase of HyTasker, we propose a novel algorithm that simultaneously considers the predicted task assignment for the participatory workers  ...  In the offline phase, a group of workers (called opportunistic workers) are selected, and they complete MCS tasks during their daily routines (i.e., opportunistic mode).  ...  The selected opportunistic workers will collect sensing data for all tasks during their routine trajectories when they connect to the cell towers.  ...
