Visible to the public Incentive Mechanism for Mobile Crowdsourcing, Reaching Spatial and Temporal Coverage Under Budget Constraints

This proposal addresses the problem of spatial and temporal coverage for crowdsensing (CS). In particular, the approach focuses on the coverage of isolated sub-regions from the target area where participants' density is very low. We tackle this problem by persuading participants to modify their ongoing trajectories and visiting those regions before reaching their final destinations. We model a sensing market as a non-cooperative game, where participants are the players and trajectories are the strategies.
