Smart Sensing Systems for the Daily Drive

Nawaz, Sarfraz, Efstratiou, Christos, Mascolo, Cecilia (2016) Smart Sensing Systems for the Daily Drive. IEEE Pervasive Computing, 15 (1). pp. 39-43. ISSN 1536-1268. E-ISSN 1558-2590. (doi:10.1109/MPRV.2016.22) (KAR id:54528)


When driving, you might sometimes wonder, "Are there any disruptions on my regular route that might delay me, and will I be able to find a parking space when I arrive?" Two smartphone-based prototype systems can help answer these questions. The first is ParkSense, which can be used to sense on-street parking-space occupancy when coupled with electronic parking payment systems. The second system can sense and recognize a user's repeated car journeys, which can be used to provide personalized alerts to the user. Both systems aim to minimize the impact of sensing tasks on the device's lifetime so that the user can continue to use the device for its primary purpose. This department is part of a special issue on smart vehicle spaces.
