Portable sensory devices carried by humans-which are referred to as Human Probes-facilitate easy-to-use sensing and monitoring of urban areas. In this demonstration, we developed a prototype of Aquiba sensing system from off-the-shelf mobile phone. Aquiba involves collaborative sensing that helps in achieving high-fidelity sensing while minimizing overall energy consumption. We validated the benefit of collaborative sensing through field experiments.
