Summary: We model a moving object as a sizable physical entity equipped with GPS, wireless communication capability, and a computer. Based on a grid model, we develop a distributed system, FATES, to manage data for moving objects in a two-dimensional space. The system is used to provide time-dependent shortest paths for moving objects. The performance study shows that FATES yields shorter average trip time when there is a more congested route than any other routes in the domain space.
