In this paper, we propose a novel smartphone sensing framework which allows heterogeneous and concurrent sensor access, energy-efficient task partitioning across smartphone and server, and allows integration in third-party applications following some simple rules and constraints. We demonstrate how the framework is able to reduce power-usage on the smartphone as well as maintains optimum network bandwidth usage, while not sacrificing on user experience and sensor accuracy.
