Real-time streaming mobility analytics

    Location prediction over mobility traces may find applications in navigation, traffic optimization, city planning and smart cities. Due to the scale of the mobility in a metropolis, real time processing is one of the major Big Data challenges.

    In this paper we deploy distributed streaming algorithms and infrastructures to process large scale mobility data for fast reaction time prediction. We evaluate our methods on a data set derived from the Orange D4D Challenge data representing sample traces of Ivory Coast mobile phone users. Our results open the possibility for efficient real time mobility predictions of even large metropolitan areas.
