Vehicles provide an ideal platforms for a plethora of emerging applications such as networked gaming, multimedia content delivery and urban sensing. Cars have no power constraints and they can be instrumented with high end computational units and graphic devices. The deployment at scale of urban vehicular systems, however, require a careful design able to(More)
In the last several years the awareness about pollution levels and other natural hazards has risen significantly. Millions of citizens globally pay daily attention to air quality and other factors such as for instance UV index and pollens. This new need has been so far met by a plethora of smartphone applications that leverage data collected by the(More)
—Intense vehicular traffic is recognized as a global societal problem, with a multifaceted influence on the quality of life of a person. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) can play an important role in combating such problem, decreasing pollution levels and, consequently, their negative effects. One of the goals of ITSs, in fact, is that of(More)
While fully understood, the opportunities posed to the consumer market by mobile computing platforms have been so far mainly exploited with smartphones and a few other gadgets. This is true for both the exchange of data and personal communication purposes, but also for sensing operations. Efficient sensing operations, however, may not always be performed(More)
Environmental contaminations such as fine particulate matter (PM<sub>2.5</sub>) and ultraviolet (UV) are expanding public health concerns globally. Existing centralized monitoring stations, however, are unable to properly estimate human exposure due to the low resolution spatiotemporal data. Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) uses real-time capable(More)
