Position information of moving objects plays a vital role in many pervasive applications. Therefore, moving objects databases (MODs), which can manage trajectory data of a number objects, are used in many pervasive systems. A crucial problem with MODs is how to efficiently track a remote object's trajectory in real-time, i.e. how to continuously report the sensed trajectory data to the MOD with minimal effort. For this purpose, we present a prototypical implementation of the Generic Remote Trajectory Simplification (GRTS) protocol, which optimizes storage consumption, processing, and communication costs. Our prototypical system includes a fully functional MOD as well as map-based mobile applications for subnotebooks and smartphones to illustrate the functioning of GRTS.
