Whitepaper: On Profiling Mobility and Predicting Locations of Campus-Wide Wireless Network Users

by University at BuffaloJan 01, 2008

This paper analyzes a year long wireless network users’ mobility trace data collected on ETH Zurich campus. Unlike earlier work, the paper profiles the movement pattern of wireless users and predicts their locations. The daily list of hubs, along with their corresponding visit probabilities are referred to as a mobility profile. It is also shown that over a period of time (e.g., a week), a user may repeatedly follow a mixture of mobility profiles with certain probabilities associated with each of the profiles.
