Abstract: Moving object indexing and query processing is a well studied research topic, with applications in areas such as intelligent transport systems and location-based services. While much existing work explicitly or implicitly assumes a deterministic object movement model, real-world objects often move in more complex and stochastic ways. This paper investigates the possibility of a marriage between moving-object indexing and probabilistic object modeling. Given the distributions of the current locations and velocities of moving objects, we devise an efficient inference method for the prediction of future locations. We demonstrate that such prediction can be seamlessly integrated into existing index structures designed for moving objects, thus improving the meaningfulness of range and nearest neighbor query results in highly dynamic and uncertain environments. The paper reports on extensive experiments on the B x-tree that offer insights into the properties of the paper's proposal. © 2009 VLDB Endowment.
