Trajectory Clustering n Questions: q Which distance between trajectories? q Which kind of clustering? q What is a cluster ‘mean’ or ‘centroid’? n A representative trajectory? Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World" 4

Which distance? n Average Euclidean distance D(t 1 , t 2 ) |T = n n q n 2 |T | distance between moving objects 1 and 2 at time t Similar objects = almost always in the same place at the same time Computed on the whole trajectory Computational aspects: q n 1 “Synchronized” behaviour distance q n ò d (t (t ), t (t ))dt T Cost = O( | 1| + | 2| ) (| | = number of points in ) It is a metric => efficient indexing methods allowed, e. g. [Frentzos et al. 2007] Timeseries-based approaches: LCSS, DTW, ERP, EDR Trajectory-oriented approach: q (time-relaxed) route similarity vs. (time-aware) trajectory similarity and variations (speedpattern based similarity; directional similarity; …) [Pelekis et al. 2007] Pelekis et al.

A word on uncertainty Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

Handling Uncertainty n n Handling uncertainty is a relatively new topic! A lot of research effort has been assigned q Developing models for representing uncertainty in trajectories. The most popular one [Trajcevski et al. 2004]: n n a trajectory of an object is modeled as a 3 D cylindrical volume around the tracked trajectory (polyline) Various degrees of uncertainty Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World" 12

Coming back to our approach Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

Motivation n Challenge 1: Introduce trajectory fuzziness in spatial clustering techniques q The application of spatial clustering algorithms (k-means, BIRCH, DBSCAN, STING, …) to Trajectory Databases (TD) is not straightforward q Fuzzy clustering algorithms (Fuzzy C-Means and its variants) quantify the degree of membership of each data vector to a cluster q n The inherent uncertainty in TD should taken into account. Challenge 2: study the nature of the centroid / mean / representative trajectory in a cluster of trajectories. q Is it a ‘trajectory’ itself? Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World" 14

Our contribution n I-Un-Tra: An intuitionistic fuzzy vector representation of trajectories q enables clustering of trajectories by existing (fuzzy or not) clustering algorithms n DUn. Tra: A distance metric of uncertain trajectories n Cen-Tra: The centroid of a bunch of trajectories q n using density and local similarity properties TR-I-FCM: A novel modification of FCM algorithm for clustering complex trajectory datasets q exploiting on DUn.

Proposed similarity metric (2/2) n n Assuming two intuitionistic fuzzy sets on it, A = (MA, ΓA, ΠA) and B = (MB, ΓB, ΠΒ), with the same cardinality n, the similarity measure Z between A and B is given by the following equation: where z(A’, B’) for fuzzy sets A' and B' (e. g. for MA, MB) is defined as: and similarly for ΓA, ΓB and ΠA, ΠB.
