Mobile phones have become ubiquitous within our everyday life. Modern mobile phones are capable of capturing high resolution images and of recording high quality sounds. Many are also equipped with a high-resolution color display; they support different wireless networking standards and have sufficient memory to run a variety of different applications. The development of software applications for mobile computers has been recently spurred on by the availability of more powerful operating systems and the transfer of standardized programming languages on ever-smaller computing platforms. People take their phones everywhere, using them in a variety of environments and situations to perform a whole range of different tasks. In this talk, I will present how the built-in sensing capabilities in Mobile phones provide an opportunity for people to monitor their local environments in affordable way.

This talk is part of the Horizon: A Sensory World. Novel Sensor Technologies and Applications series.
