The research field of moving objects has been quite active in the past 20 years. The recording of position data becomes easy and huge amounts of mobile data are collected. Moving objects databases represent time-dependent objects and support queries with spatial and temporal constraints. In this paper we provide the vision of a multi-model and intelligent moving objects database. The goal is to enhance the data management of moving objects by providing extensive data models for different applications and fusing artificial intelligence techniques. Toward this goal, we propose how to develop corresponding modules and integrate them into the system to achieve the next-generation moving objects database.
