  • Article | How Many People are Needed for a Crowdsensing Campaign?

    We built a simulator using Node.js that mimics the characteristics of a crowdsensing campaign. We showcased three different scenarios where we estimate the required number of participants and offer a discussion on the plausibility of having that many participants by considering factors such as accessibility to the area of interest, specifically the area from which the measurements are needed.
