Abstract

Low-cost sensing technologies that stream data into web platforms have become increasingly available for households, blurring the boundaries between the public and the private. In this paper we draw on our experience with the Smart Citizen crowdsensing project to present a vision of a future where households become city infrastructure through the data they produce. We highlight the challenges involved with this vision in the hope that they will contribute to both academic and industry discussions on the possibilities and difficulties around home-based crowdsensing technologies.
