Ubiquitous smartphones with various built-in sensors have boosted development of many crowdsensing applications in recent years. To achieve good performance with this class of applications, a large number of participating users with sensed data are needed. Two important considerations for improving user participation in crowdsensing are the incentive mechanism for motivating users to contribute their sensing capabilities, and the techniques for protecting user privacy. In this article, we survey the works that address these issues by integrating privacy techniques with incentive mechanisms. We also advocate two future research directions to enhance incentive mechanisms for mobile crowdsensing.
