Abstract

The goal of the paper is to give an overview of the most relevant aspects of mobile crowdsensing that are already utilized by the society. The paper focuses on best practices applied in smart cities today, how these applications can be motivated (incentives), and how they rely on technology enablers of today’s vertical silos and future’s horizontal approaches. We introduce a path for transforming the vertical silos of today containing separated solutions in various domains into a horizontal, unified ecosystem, giving a way to novel technology and business opportunities.
