Where : 
Campus SophiaTech – Bâtiment Forum, 930 Route des Colles, 06410 Biot, France
Description : 

APISENSE® ( is a crowd-sensing platform that leverages the gathering of field datasets at scale. In particular, APISENSE® is designed as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution that remotely orchestrates crowds of mobile devices to monitor physical events or human behaviours in the wild. Collecting data in the field tends to be a tedious tasks for most of researchers as it requires to spend time, energy and money to develop dedicated mobile apps. The role of APISENSE® is therefore to catalyse this process by delivering to the scientific community a comprehensive distributed infrastructure that guarantee both privacy and energy consumption of participants. The applications of APISENSE® encompasses case studies in the domains of telecom, smart cities, air quality, or human sciences.
