Abstract

Due to the advance in information and communication technologies, smart cities have become an increasingly appealing vision. One indispensable basis in the research, development and implementation of smart cities is urban sensing technologies, which collect various citywide data that will be processed to generate information for understanding the status of cities. Automotive sensing is a novel urban sensing technology that utilizes the mobility of automobiles to conduct sensing tasks. In a collaborative smart-city project with the city office of Fujisawa City, Japan, we designed and implemented an automotive sensing platform called Cruisers, and have deployed it into the garbage collecting trucks of the city to evaluate the applicability of automotive sensing in realistic urban settings. In this paper, we first detail the system design, implementation and deployment of Cruisers and then evaluate its performance in realistic setting.
