Abstract

This paper presents MinaQn1, a web-based participatory sensing platform to enhance bidirectional communication between municipality and citizens for citizen-centric urban development. To make cities more comfortable to live, it is necessary for municipality to collect and reect citizens' demands in their administrative works. MinaQn enables city officers to make various questionnaire to citizen easily, and citizen can answer the questionnaire with their location information through any devices by using WEB interface. The answers from citizen are collected as sensor data with unified format and protocol, so that the data can be shared and used for various applications. We designed and implemented MinaQn with web and XMPP technology, and carried out a two weeks experiment in corporation with 3 cities in Japan. Based on the experiment, we measured the effectiveness of MinaQn with qualitative and quantitative data. In addition, we also evaluated how citizens consider about providing their location information to the administrative works of the cities.
