Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Along with the improvement of security awareness, a safety information such as brightness of sidewalk at night are required for pedestrian navigation systems.
In this study, we propose and develop an illuminance inferring method by participatory sensing that utilizes a light sensor of the smartphone for assessing a safety level of sidewalks at night.
Participatory sensing system requires continuously and enthusiastically participating of many user.
Therefore in this paper, we develop the streetlamp's illuminance collecting application ``StreetlampCollection'' which has gamification mechanism.
To evaluate the proposed system, we experimented for 4 months by publishing the application.
As a result of the experiment, we succeeded to collect a data of the 101 users and 124 devices for 301 hours.
However, we observed that the number of installed users started decreasing after about one month from the application publication.
So, based on this usage, we additionally implemented the further elements to increase the motivation of the participants.
