The Competing Crowds project is an experimental platform born out of the program digital fellows @swissnex San Francisco of the University of Geneva in 2017 and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) project CRSII2-154458 SwissSenseSynergy. It is a research project lead by the TCS Sensor Lab at the Centre Universitaire d'Informatique of the University of Geneva in Switzerland.

We explore transparent and load reducing / energy efficient data collection in Mobile Crowdsensing.

We focus on applications that involve people collecting information for the community.

Load-Balanced Data Collection

The efficient operation of mobile crowdsensing systems involves the non-trivial issue of distributing work loads among mobile and heterogeneous devices.
