Analysis of trajectories in mobile networks

Our new paper: Analysis of trajectories in mobile networks based on data about the network proximity

This paper is devoted to location-based mobile services. The movement (trajectory) data extraction from logs related to network proximity is considered. Usually, this type of pattern extraction (search) relates to trajectory databases containing geoposition information. We consider a model of context-aware computing (a context-aware browser) based on network proximity. A mobile phone is considered as a proximity sensor. The geoposition information is replaced with the network proximity. Any existing or specially created network node can be regarded as a sensor of presence that provides access to dynamically determined network content. The disclosure of the content depends on the set of rules describing the conditions of network’s proximity. An algorithm is given for calculating the trajectories in mobile networks based on information about the network’s proximity.
