Abstract: With the advancement in mobile technology, the sensing and computational capability of mobile devices is increasing. The sensors in mobile devices are being used in a variety of ways to sense and actuate. Mobile crowdsensing is a paradigm that involves ordinary people to participate in a sensing task. This sensing model has the capability to provide a new vision of people centric sensing as a service. This research work reviewed different domains utilizing mobile crowdsensing for solving different domain specific problems. Mobile crowd sensing model is also posing different socio-technical challenges which needs to be addressed. The research work reviewed and analyzed a variety of socio-technical challenges of mobile crowdsensing and possible solutions presented by different studies. There are different socio-technical challenges but the challenge of privacy in crowdsensing requires extra measures to realize the vision of mobile crowdsensing.
