Paper-Enhanced Mobile Crowdsourcing

Type of Thesis: 
Master Thesis

The lastest version of the Echo Smartpen can host and execute applications on the pen. In a previous project, we have investigated the feasability of Echo Smartpen for paper-digital maps. This project will build on the existing paper-digital map prototype and investigate how the natural pen and paper map interaction can be used for annotating other sensor data and provide a simple and convenient solution for creating the supplementary metadata in participatory sensing and mobile crowdsourcing.
