Summary Mobile crowdsensing is a technology that allows large scale, cost-effective sensing of the physical world. In mobile crowdsensing, mobile personal devices such as smart phones or smart watches come equipped with a variety of sensors that can be leveraged to collect data related to environment, transportation, healthcare, safety and so on. This book presents the first extensive coverage of mobile crowdsensing, with examples and insights drawn from the authors' extensive research on this topic as well as from the research and development of a growing community of researchers and practitioners working in this emerging field. Throughout the text, the authors provide the reader with various examples of crowdsensing applications and the building blocks to creating the necessary infrastructure, explore the related concepts of mobile sensing and crowdsourcing, and examine security and privacy issues introduced by mobile crowdsensing platforms
