PROJECT TITLE :
Opportunistic Sampling for Joint Population Size and Density Estimation
Think about a collection of probes, called “agents”, who sample, primarily based on opportunistic contacts, a population moving between a collection of discrete locations. An example of such agents are Bluetooth probes that sample the visible Bluetooth devices in a population. Primarily based on the obtained measurements, we construct a parametric statistical model to jointly estimate the full population size (e.g., the quantity of visible Bluetooth devices) and their spatial density. We evaluate the performance of our estimators by using Bluetooth traces obtained during an open-air event and Wi-Fi traces obtained on a university campus.
