We are witnessing a new revolution in computing and communication involving symbiotic networks of people (social networks), intelligent devices, smart mobile computing, and communication devices that will form cyber-physical social systems. The emergence of intelligent devices with monitoring, sensing, and actuation capabilities referred to as Internet of Things and social networks have increased the popularity of novel social applications such as crowdsourcing and crowdsensing. The upsurge of such applications has fostered the need for scalable cost-efficient platforms that can enable distributed data analytics. In this paper, we propose CARDAP, a scalable, energy-efficient, generic and extensible component-based distributed data analytics platform for mobile crowdsensing (MCS) applications. CARDAP incorporates on-the-move activity recognition and a number of energy efficient data delivery strategies using real-time mobile data stream mining. We propose and develop theoretical cost models for typical crowdsensing application scenarios. Experimental evaluations of CARDAP using a proof-of-concept MCS scenario validate the theoretical cost model estimates and demonstrate the platform's ability to deliver significant benefits in energy, resource, and query processing efficiency.
