**Which distance? ò Average Euclidean distance**

“Synchronized” behaviour distance Similar objects = almost always in the same place at the same time Computed on the whole trajectory Computational aspects: 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: (time-relaxed) route similarity vs. (time-aware) trajectory similarity and variations (speed-pattern based similarity; directional similarity; …) [Pelekis et al. 2007] | )) ( ), ) , 2 1 T dt t d D ò = distance between moving objects 1 and 2 at time t Pelekis et al.

A word on uncertainty

12
**Handling Uncertainty Handling uncertainty is a relatively new topic!**

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

13
**Coming back to our approach**

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

15
Our contribution I-Un-Tra: An intuitionistic fuzzy vector representation of trajectories enables clustering of trajectories by existing (fuzzy or not) clustering algorithms DUnTra: A distance metric of uncertain trajectories Cen-Tra: The centroid of a bunch of trajectories using density and local similarity properties TR-I-FCM: A novel modification of FCM algorithm for clustering complex trajectory datasets exploiting on DUnTra and Cen-Tra.

**From Fuzzy sets to Intuitionistic fuzzy sets**

Definition 1 (Zadeh, 1965). Let a set E be fixed. A fuzzy set on E is an object of the form Definition 2 (Atanassov, 1986; Atanassov, 1994). An intuitionistic fuzzy set (IFS) A is an object of the form where where and Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

17
**Hesitancy For every element**

The hesitancy of the element x to the set A is Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

18
**Vector representation of trajectories**

Assume a regular grid G(m n) consisting of cells ck,l , a trajectory and a target dimension p << ni, The “approximate trajectory” consists of p regions (i.e. sets of cells) crossed by Ti during period pj The “Uncertain Trajectory” is the ε-buffer of Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

19
**Intuitionistic Uncertain Trajectories**

membership = inside cell with 100% probability (i.e. thick portions) non-membership = outside cell with 100% probability (i.e. dotted portions) hesitancy = ignorance whether inside or outside the cell (i.e. solid thin portions) A cell ck.l ck.l ε Pelekis et al.

21
**Proposed similarity metric (1/2)**

The distance between two I-UnTra A and B is: where and Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

22
**Proposed similarity metric (2/2)**

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. Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

23
**C is more similar to A than B**

An example A={x, 0.4, 0.2}, B={x, 0.5, 0.3}, C={x, 0.5, 0.2} C is more similar to A than B Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

24
**The Centroid Trajectory**

The idea (similarity-density-based approach): adopt some local similarity function to identify common sub-trajectories (concurrent existence in space-time), follow a region growing approach according to density Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

27
**Fuzzy C-Means algorithm**

The FCM objective function: Given that to be minimized requires: and The FCM algorithm minimizes intra-cluster variance, but shares the same problems as k-means. It does not ensure that it converges to an optimal solution, while the identified minimum is local and the results depend on the initial choice of centroids. FCM tries to partition the dataset by just looking at the data vectors and as such it ignores the fact that these vectors may be accompanied by qualitative information which may be given per feature (i.e. dimension)! 1. Determine c (1 < c < N), and initialize V(0), j=1, 2. Calculate the membership matrix U(j), 3. Update the centroids’ matrix V(j), 4. If |U(j+1)-U(j)|>ε then j=j+1 and go to Step 2. Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

28
**Ignore update centroid step**

CenTR-I-FCM algorithm The FCM objective function: Given that to be minimized requires : and Ignore update centroid step and instead use CenTra 1. V(0) = c random I-UnTra; j=1; 2. repeat 3. Calculate membership matrix U(j) 4. Update the centroids’ matrix V(j) using CenTra; 5. Compute membership and non-membership degrees of V(j) 6. Until ||Uj+1-Uj||F≤ε; j=j+1; Pelekis et al.

35
**Results (Quality of CenTra)**

Representative Trajectories vs. Centroid Trajectories cell size=1.3%, ε=0, δ=0.09 cell size=1.3%, ε=0, δ=0.09, cell size=2.8%, ε=0, δ=0.02 Figure 6(a) illustrates the outcome of TRACLUS. Evidently, the cluster representative (red line) does not fit the real movement, mainly due to its averaging technique. Recall at this point that TRACLUS clusters segments rather than whole trajectories (even considering this, the algorithm does not compass the turn occurring at the bottom of the figure). On the other hand, Figure 6(b) and Figure 6(c) illustrate CenTra, produced with variable cell size, ε and density δ. It turns out that CenTra not only resides on the data traces, but also vanishes the non-interesting movement details (the ‘noisy’ infrequent parts are not part of the centroid), it catches turns, and it becomes thicker in portions where something interesting (i.e. dense-similar subtrajectories) happens. Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

36
Conclusions We proposed a three-step approach for clustering trajectories of moving objects, motivated by the observation that clustering and representation issues in TD are inherently subject to uncertainty. 1st step: an intuitionistic fuzzy vector representation of trajectories plus a distance metric consisting of a metric for sequences of regions and a metric for intuitionistic fuzzy sets 2nd step: Algorithm CenTra, a novel technique for discovering the centroid of a bundle of trajectories 3rd step: Algorithm CenTR-I-FCM, for clustering trajectories under uncertainty Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World"

37
Future Work Devise a clever sampling technique for multi-dimensional data so as to diminish the effect of initialization in the algorithm; Exploit the metric properties of the proposed distance function by using an distance-based index structure (for efficiency purposes); Perform extensive experimental evaluation using large trajectory datasets Pelekis et al.

**Which kind of clustering?**

General requirements: Non-spherical clusters should be allowed E.g.: A traffic jam along a road = “snake-shaped” cluster Tolerance to noise Low computational cost Applicability to complex, possibly non-vectorial data Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World" 41

42
Temporal focusing Different time intervals can show different behaviours E.g.: objects that are close to each other within a time interval can be much distant in other periods of time The time interval becomes a parameter E.g.: rush hours vs. low traffic times Already supported by the distance measure Just compute D(1 , 2) |T on a time interval T’ T Problem: significant T’ are not always known a priori An automated mechanism is needed to find them Pelekis et al. "Clustering Trajectories of Moving Objects in an Uncertain World" 42

43
**TRACLUS – representative trajectory**

The representative trajectory of the cluster: Compute the average direction vector and rotate the axes temporarily . Sort the starting and ending points by the coordinate of the rotated axis. While scanning the starting and ending points in the sorted order, count the number of line segments and compute the average coordinate of those line segments. Pelekis et al.

**Trajectory Uncertainty vs. Anonymization**

Never Walk Alone [Bonchi et al. 2008] Trade uncertainty for anonymity: trajectories that are close up the uncertainty threshold are indistinguishable Combine k-anonymity and perturbation Two steps: Cluster trajectories into groups of k similar ones (removing outliers) Perturb trajectories in a cluster so that each one is close to each other up to the uncertainty threshold Pelekis et al.
