Abstract

Mobile Participatory Sensing Systems have the potential to improve different services through monitoring of the urban landscape using mobile devices based on the collaboration of thousands of mobile users. Many articles have been recently published related to mobile participatory systems where data collected from thousands of mobile users are analyzed to extract vital community information and a spatiotemporal interpretation of the phenomenon of interest is built. The purpose of this paperis to assess the state-of-the-art mobile participatory sensing systems to classify key practical requirementsof such systems and related challenges. The Kitchenham method has been used to conduct this review. A selection of 24 articles out of 590 articles related to mobile participatory sensing frameworks have been made between the period of 2013 to 2018 from the IEEE Xplore Digital Library and ACM library for assessment. A detailed review has been conducted through the classification of mobile participatory sensing systems and a critical evaluation is carried out. Potential opportunities and challenges for modern mobile participatory sensing systems are also discussed. This paper provides researchers in the field with a comprehensive and up-to-date review of mobile participatory sensing systems.
