MoPiDiG - Profile-based group forming in ad hoc networks

Profile-based group forming in mobile ad hoc networks represents a new field of application. The profile-based group forming corresponds to a data mining on profiles in a ad hoc enviroment. In the profile-based group forming every mobile host is equipped with user profile. As the subscribers move around similar profiles within the ad hoc network are searched and pooled to groups. As a consequence the group members are enabled to solve a problem together. We use profile-based group forming as an example in a taxi-sharing scenario. At this at highly frequented locations persons with similar destinations are searched so that they can share a taxi.
