What can a mobility trace tell us?

A mobility trace records the position and/or contacts of a given mobile entity in a given reference system. Therefore, the trace is a dataset of records that provide such data. Currently, we find real and synthetic traces for different entities, such as people and vehicles, using different reference systems such as global navigational systems (e.g., GPS), contact (e.g., call detail record, proximity), and social information (e.g., location-based social networks – Instagram, etc).

Given these different mobility traces, a fundamental and interesting question is: what can this trace tell us? For instance, given a mobility trace of a vehicle using GPS, can we derive the speeds, congestion points, social contacts of vehicles? Can we identify urban canyons? And what happens if we consider simultaneously other data sources such as the weather condition?

Short bio
Corps de texte

Antonio A. F. Loureiro is a full professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, with 22 years of carrier. He holds a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Science from UFMG and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of British Columbia, Canada. He is also a CNPq researcher level 1A (CNPq is the Brazilian Research Agency responsible for most of the research funding in the country and, in the CS area, there are about 20 researchers at this level (top level) considering 500+ researchers who receive this award). In the last five years, he published over 40 papers in top CS journals and his publications has a total of 12353 citations. Having the highest h-index in the CS area (54) among Brazilian, he has graduated more than 20 PhD students and more than 50 master students. He got best paper awards at: IEEE ISCC 2016, IEEE ISCC 2015, IEEE MASCOTS 2014, ACM SenSys 2012, IEEE CPSCom 2012, IEEE ICC 2008, and several other runner-ups. Finally, he got in 2015 the IEEE Communications Society Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks Technical Committee recognition award with the citation "for his contributions to the design, modeling and analysis of communication protocols for ad hoc networks" (this was the first time this award was given to a researcher outside North America). His research interests are in the design of distributed algorithms for distributed systems and ubiquitous computing, with issues mainly related to wireless communications for mobile entities.
