environmental monitoring and participatory sensing
Linking the virtual world to our physical environment through wireless sensing is one of the most fundamental developments that information technology has been undergoing. We are exploring techniques of managing data captured by sensors in a sustainable way, involving communities into the sensing tasks, and providing support for properly interpreting the captured data.
