Urban Sensing
Urban sensing aims to combine traditional wireless sensor networks with opportunistic and participatory sensing. Sensor data from islands of wireless sensor networks will be extended and enhanced by data collected by people with their mobile phones and vehicles on the road.

The sheer scale of thousands of mobile phones used as sensors collecting data is almost beyond imagination. Data is collected in places were previously no measurements were taken, thus broadening the scale and scope of information gathering considerably. Sharing and combining information collected by large numbers of people will reveal patterns that were previously invisible. Acting on this newfound information the city's stress may be alleviated and thus improve quality of living.

Traditional sensing becomes people-centric sensing, opening a new range of applications in personal, public and social contexts.
