Distributed, Concurrent Range Monitoring of Spatial-Network Constrained Mobile Objects
The ability to continuously monitor the positions of mobile objects is important in many applications. While most past work has been set in Euclidean spaces, the mobile objects relevant in many applications are constrained to spatial networks. This paper addresses the problem of range monitoring of mobile objects in this setting, in which network distance is concerned. An architecture is proposed where the mobile clients and a central server share computation, the objective being to obtain scalability by utilizing the capabilities of the clients. The clients issue location reports to the server, which is in charge of data storing and query processing. The server associates each range monitoring query with the network-edge portions it covers. This enables incremental maintenance of each query, and it also enables shared maintenance of concurrent queries by identifying the overlaps among such queries. The mobile clients contribute to the query processing by encapsulating their host edge ...
