Mobile crowdsensing is an emerging paradigm that leverages smartphones with built-in sensing capabilities and human mobility for collective sensing and mapping of a phenomenon of common interest. In this talk, I will present the application of the mobile crowdsensing paradigm for continual and detailed spatio-temporal wireless network monitoring by treating wireless network interfaces on smartphones as measurement sensors. In particular, I will outline our recent and ongoing research concerning three cases: indoor wireless monitoring, city-scale WiFi usage characterization and crowdsourcing based mobile network measurement.
