Description {{html clean="false" wiki="false"}}

Efficient urban planning in today’s smart cities not only depends on the accessible physical infrastructure but also on the amount and quality of available information and communication. The CHOReOS middleware targets to support sensing of data from mobile devices on ultra large scales, towards providing access to information contributed by the participants. 

The project consists of using the CHOReOS middleware to design and develop innovative applications that the inhabitants of smart cities can use to improve their living. These applications will be based on data originating from sensors on Android devices (location, noise level, etc.) but furthermore, the use of data from non-sensing services that may exist in a smart city (buses schedule, gas prices, etc.) is also encouraged. Some examples include: information students looking for a quiet place to study before their exams, and a noisy, happening place for partying afterwards or (ii) people searching for the least crowded bus station nearby to catch their bus.

A secondary objective of this project will be to release the collected sensing data from the app as a publicly available dataset, to be used by researchers worldwide working on large scale urban mobile systems.
