Conference Paper

The recent advances in sensing and communication technologies pave the way for interfacing cars with smartphones to offer value-added services to users on the road. Kinematics, automotive diagnostics, passengers load, and pollution data can be provided by vehicles, augmented with external sensors, to make the road transport greener and smarter. With the purpose of supporting and improving data collection and distribution, by boosting user participation, in this work a smartphone-based platform is demonstrated that exploits cheap dedicated hardware to interact with sensors on board and in the vehicle’s surroundings and opportunistically leverages available wireless connectivity to remotely transmit collected data.
