Sensing data collection is of great significance in mobile crowd sensing. We consider the problem of online maximization of data utility of the sensing data collected from smartphone users under a time average budget constraint. There are several major challenges, including random and unknown phone contexts, budget constraint and existence of data redundancy. Little work has studied this crucial problem. In this paper we formulate it as an online scheduling problem which determines sensing… CONTINUE READING
