Crowdsourcing can play an important role in the Internet of Things (IoT) applications for information sensing and gathering where the participants are equipped with geolocated devices. Mobile crowdsourcing can be seen as a new paradigm contributing to the development of the IoT. They can be merged to form a new and essential platform in crowdsourcing IoT paradigm for data collection from different sources and communication mediums. This paper presents a comprehensive survey for this new

This survey paper aims to increase awareness and encourage continuing developments and innovations from the research community and industry towards the Crowdsourcing IoT paradigm.
