Abstract: The use of information technology is one way to help in solving urban problems, aiming for the development of smart cities. Crowdsensing mechanism is an important tool in this process, exploring a collective intelligence and organising a collaboration of large groups of people. This work focuses mainly on the process of management of crowdsensing campaigns contributing to the theoretical framework regarding the theme. Through a crowdsensing system, collaborative data collection and sensor monitoring campaigns were executed, which allowed learning about the management of crowdsensing campaigns, with results such as adjustments in the computational platform by the insertion of new types of campaigns and the inclusion of feedback elements. Collaborative data collection campaigns were carried out in a monitored way that enabled learning about crowdsensing campaigns management, resulting in significant contributions to the improvement of the system and propositions of adjustments in the theoretical framework of management campaign models.
