Abstract:

This paper discusses the user-centered location model used in comMotion. In this context, the location model refers to a set of learned places (destinations), which coincide to a latitude and a longitude, that the user has categorized. It also includes knowledge of the routes between the destinations and the time it takes to travel them. The model is based on user experience, i.e. his patterns of mobility, so no two models are the same. We also discuss the pattern recognition models implemented for route learning, route prediction and estimation of time to arrival.

Key words: GPS – Hidden Markov model, Histogram modeling – Location-aware – Location model – User model
