Mobile crowdsensing is a new paradigm in which a crowd of mobile users exploit their carried smart phones to conduct complex sensing tasks. In this paper, we focus on the makespan sensitive task assignment problems for the crowdsensing in mobile social networks, where the mobility model is predicable, and the time of sending tasks and recycling results is non-negligible. To solve the problems, we propose an Average makespan sensitive Online Task Assignment (AOTA) algorithm and a Largest… CONTINUE READING
