—Digital maps have become a part of our daily life with a number of commercial and free map services. These services have still a huge potential for enhancement with rich semantic information to support a large class of mapping applications. In this paper, we present Map++, a system that leverages standard cell-phone sensors in a crowdsensing approach to(More)
—By exploiting reception diversity of wireless network links, researchers have shown that opportunistic routing can improve network performance significantly over traditional routing schemes. However, recently empirical studies indicate that we are too optimistic, i.e. diversity gain can be overestimated if we continue to assume that packet receptions of(More)
—Digital maps have become a part of our everyday lives as they are integrated into a wide range of map-based services like traffic estimation, navigation systems, and many more. These services still have a huge opportunity for enhancements with semantically richer maps to support a large class of new services. In this demo, we demonstrate the MAP++(More)
—Current outdoor localization techniques fail to provide the required accuracy for estimating the car's lane. In this paper, we present LaneQuest: a system that leverages the ubiquitous and low-energy inertial sensors available in commodity smart-phones to provide an accurate estimate of the car's current lane. LaneQuest leverages hints from the phone(More)
—Recent empirical studies have shown clear evidence that wireless links are not independent and that the packet receptions on adjacent wireless links are correlated. This finding contradicts the widely held link-independence assumption in the calculation of the core metric, i.e., the expected number of transmissions to the candidate forwarder set, in(More)
Designing massive scale crowdsensing experiments using smartphones can be very challenging. In this work, we define a new approach for designing massive crowdsensing applications where we offload the burden of sensing from smartphones to low cost off-the-shelf Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) proximity tags. We discuss the usage of advertisements in BLE tags as a(More)
