ABSTRACT The importance of location prediction is rapidly increasing with the current trend of database applications in mobile computing environment. However, current personal communication services network could only provide currently maintained location information of non-idle mobile terminals. Pertinent researches predict the future location based on tangent velocity approaches, which require mobile terminals to spend lots of precious electronic power to sense and then measure a sequence of positions for predicting the future tangent velocity, and the prediction is effective only within a short range of time. In this study, we propose an approach to predict future locations of mobile terminals based on the moving behaviors mined from their long-term moving history. Location prediction based on moving behavior requires no power consumption for position measurement, and the prediction results are effective for a long time without requiring the queried clients to be non-idle. With the help of moving behavior, we propose several location prediction operators for location query. Finally, we demonstrate the accuracy of the location query operators through simulation statistics. The experimental results show that the predictions are accurate enough for regular moving mobile terminals.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of 4G network is to provide best services to the users which in turn made the performance of existing network more critical. Further, the large traffic generated in such networks creates congestion resulting in overloading of the system. Frequent delays, loss of packets, and in addition the number of retransmission/paging also increases the computational cost of the system. This paper proposes a novel way to reduce overloading and retrieval mechanism for VLR through optimized search, based on the information of users mobility pattern (User profiles based (UPB)) to track the user. This not only improves the overall performance of the system, especially in the events when the visitor loca-tion register (VLR) is overloaded due to heavy traffic and congestion of the network. It was also established through simulation studies that the proposed UPB scheme optimizes the search and reduces the average waiting time in a queue. In addition, the provision of VLR w (waiting visitor location register) avoids the overloading of main VLR and provides a recovery/retrieval mechanism for VLR failure.

    ABSTRACT: Advances in wireless transmission and mobile technology applied to LBS (Location-based Services) flood us with amounts of moving objects data. Vast amounts of gathered data from position sensors of mobile phones, PDAs, or vehicles hide interesting and valuable knowledge and describe the behavior of moving objects. The correlation between temporal moving patterns of moving objects and geo-feature spatio-temporal attribute was ignored, and the value of spatio-temporal trajectory data was not fully exploited too. Urban expanding or frequent town plan change bring about a large amount of outdated or imprecise data in spatial database of LBS, and they cannot be updated timely and efficiently by manual processing. In this paper we introduce a data mining approach to movement pattern extraction of moving objects, build a model to describe the relationship between movement patterns of LBS mobile objects and their environment, and put up with a spatio-temporal database update strategy in LBS database based on trajectories spatiotemporal mining. Experimental evaluation reveals excellent performance of the proposed model and strategy. Our original contribution include formulation of model of interaction between trajectory and its environment, design of spatio-temporal database update strategy based on moving objects data mining, and the experimental application of spatio-temporal database update by mining moving objects trajectories. © 2008 SPIE.
