Research Work by Dr Zheng Yuanqing and collaborators received the Test of Time Award in SenSys 2022

15 Nov 2022

We are pleased to announce that the research work “IODetector: A Generic Service for Indoor Outdoor Detection” by our Associate Professor Dr ZHENG Yuanqing  and his collaborators (ZHOU Pengfei , LI Zhenjiang , LI Mo, and SHEN Guobin) published in ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys) 2012 received the Test of Time Award in SenSys 2022 for “Contributions to intelligent mobile location services with enduring commercial adoption and successful widespread technology transfer”.

ACM SenSys is the premier computer systems conference focused on the architecture, design, implementation, and performance of networked sensing systems, sensor-oriented data modelling and analytics, and sensor-enabled applications. The Test of Time Award recognizes research papers that are at least 10 years old and have had long-lasting academic, industrial and/or societal impact on networked embedded sensing system science and engineering.

IODetector is the first smartphone based solution for indoor/outdoor detection, and also one of the pioneering research works in mobile sensing. IODetector has been successfully integrated in the business of on-demand food delivery service in over 300 cities in China, providing accurate status estimation for over 1 million food couriers which helps improve the delivery efficiency and increase the business profit. We believe the indoor/outdoor status could be an essential component of the infrastructure information to facilitate mobile applications and systems. Deployment experience and lessons learned are described in a recent experience paper “Experience: Adopting Indoor Outdoor Detection in On-demand Food Delivery Service” in MobiCom 2022.
