Privacy-aware Sensing-quality based Budget Feasible Incentive Mechanism for Crowdsourcing Fingerprint Collection

Wei Li, Cheng Zhang, Yoshiaki Tanaka
2020 IEEE Access  
However, how to quantify the quality of the gathered fingerprint data is still not addressed well in the design of incentive mechanism for MCS-based fingerprint collection.  ...  Mobile crowdsourcing (MCS) has shown great potential in received signal strength (RSS) fingerprint collection, in which an incentive mechanism plays a critical role to motivate users' participation.  ...  This necessitates the need for measuring the quality of sensing data (namely ''sensing quality'') and designing a quality-based incentive mechanism for crowdsourced fingerprint collection.  ...
