Mobile Sensing

With the progress of electronic device technology, a multitude of inexpensive sensors that can measure various phenomena have been installed around us. We can regard smartphones carried by many people as mobile sensors. For example, travel distance can be measured roughly by detecting the vibrations produced when walking using the accelerometer built in a smartphone. Not only smartphones, but also wearable sensors that measure our activity, or infrastructure devices such as wireless LAN base stations deployed at many places and security cameras may also be regarded as sensors.

I have performed studies on estimating the situation of persons, vehicles or environment by collecting and combining various information that can be obtained from mobile sensors, wearable sensors and infrastructure devices through wired and wireless networks in order to achieve a convenient, reliable, and safe society.
