Abstract

In recent years, with the spread of mobile devices, “participatory sensing,” in which users are asked to contribute information, such as their surrounding environment, via their smartphones, has attracted increasing attention. However, in active participatory sensing, which asks users to input text or upload photos, respondents often try to complete the request quickly and effortlessly, and consequently, not always accurately. In this study, we propose a method of expressing intention to contribute (EIC) for suppressing careless responses in participatory sensing tasks. We implemented a prototype system that requests two types of EIC method (tap the button, shake the phone), and conducted the experiment over two weeks with 20 participants. Through the statistical tests, we found that proposed EIC methods significantly suppressed the number of careless responses compared with the normal situation.
