The Internet of Everything (IoE) paradigm makes the Internet more pervasive, interconnecting every devices of everyday life, and it is a promising solution for the development of 5G network services. Nowadays, Internetconnected devices are equipped with various built-in sensors. Therefore, the concept of mobile crowdsensing (MC) has been introduced to the IoE-driven situation where mobile devices gather data with the aim of performing a specific application. In this paper, we propose a new

The major goal of our approach is to incentivize the participating devices for effective data acquisitions while protecting each individual privacy based on each device's preference. According to the Owen value mechanism, the proposed scheme provides an effective payment solution for each MC participating device under privacy considered IoE environments. The main merit possessed by our MC control approach is to guide the cooperation of mobile devices in providing MC services. Performance evaluation reveals the superiority of our proposed scheme in terms of task success ratio, MC participating ratio, and payoff fairness. Finally, we provide the guidance on the future research direction of the MC system including other issues.
