Public Sensing (PS) is a recent trend for building large-scale sensor data acquisition systems using commodity smartphones. Limiting the energy drain on participating devices is a major challenge for PS, as otherwise people will stop sharing their resources with the PS system. Existing solutions for limiting the energy drain through model-driven optimizations are limited to dense networks where there is a high probability for every point of interest to be covered by a smartphone. In this work,

Our evaluations show that this approach improves data quality by up to 41 percentage points while enabling the system to run with a greatly reduced number of participating smartphones. Furthermore, we can save up to 81 % of energy for communication and sensing while providing data matching an error bound of 1 • C up to 96 % of the time.
