Smartness in smart cities is achieved by sensing phenomena of interest and using them to make smart decisions. Because the decision makers may not own all the necessary sensing infrastructures, crowdsourced sensing can help collect important information about the city in near real-time. However, involving people brings the risk of exposing their private information. This chapter explores crowdsensing in smart city applications and its privacy implications.
