Dr Sylvester Arnab
Smart sensing, gamification and our roads
The C4Rs journey This talk will discuss the Crowd4Roads (http://C4Rs.eu) project, which is an innovative initiative combining smart sensing, ride sharing and gamification applications to harness collective intelligence for providing open data towards boosting traffic conditions on the continent. Crowd4Roads (C4Rs) stands for Crowd Sensing and Ride Sharing for Road Sustainability and it has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The goal of the project is to engage the general public, i.e. car drivers and passengers, in making road transport more sustainable by exploiting SmartRoadSense, a crowd sensing system that exploits smartphones to collect accurate data on road conditions, and increasing crowd participation in the initiative via gamified interfaces
