Sensors on (or attached to) mobile phones can enable attractive sensing applications in different domains such as environmental monitoring, social networking, healthcare, etc. We introduce a new concept, Sensing-as-a-Service (S 2 aaS), i.e., providing sensing services using mobile phones via a cloud computing system. An S 2 aaS cloud should meet the following requirements: 1) It must be able to support various mobile phone sensing applications on different smartphone platforms. 2) It must be
more &raquo; ... rgy-efficient. 3) It must have effective incentive mechanisms that can be used to attract mobile users to participate in sensing activities. In this paper, we identify unique challenges of designing and implementing an S 2 aaS cloud, review existing systems and methods, present viable solutions, and point out future research directions. Index Terms-Mobile phone sensing, sensing as a service, cloud computing, energy-efficiency, incentive mechanisms.
