Moving Objects Databases
The project, called Databases fOr MovINg Objects tracking (DOMINO), develops a prototype database system for tracking mobile units. It is described in the overview paper below. The project is partly supported by NSF Grants 0326284, 0513736, and 0209190. For a slide presentation of the project click here.
The project is directed by Ouri Wolfson. Other participants include graduate student Damian Roqueiro (DBLP entry), Venkatakumar Srinivasen, Leon Stenneth, Fatemeh Vafaee, Mayia Arun, Lei Zhang, and research scientist Dr. Bo Xu (DBLP entry).
