Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World

Mining Trajectory Databases (TD) has recently gained great interest due to the popularity of tracking devices. On the other hand, the inherent presence of uncertainty in TD (e.g., due to GPS errors) has not been taken yet into account during the mining process. In this paper, we study the effect of uncertainty in TD clustering and introduce a three-step approach to deal with it. First, we propose an intuitionistic point vector representation of trajectories that encompasses the underlying uncertainty and introduce an effective distance metric to cope with uncertainty. Second, we devise CenTra, a novel algorithm which tackles the problem of discovering the Centroid Trajectory of a group of movements. Third, we propose a variant of the Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) clustering algorithm, which embodies CenTra at its update procedure. The experimental evaluation over real world TD demonstrates the efficiency and effectiveness of our approach.
