Abstract

A Collaborative User Experience Technical Report: more about CUE...

Participatory sensing refers to the work of a potentially large number of participants who collaborate to collect data to meet individual, group, community, or societal needs. This short paper presents a participatory design approach for requirements-elicitation and high-level design of participatory sensing projects, in a project that invites end-users to contribute not only the field data, but also the map-based
applications that solicit and organize those field data. We close with discussions of tensions in the field of participatory sensing, and a consideration of how participatory
sensing may inform the ECSCW discussion of “the fragmentation of CSCW.”
