We consider a queueing system composed of queues distributed at fixed locations in a continuous environment and a mobile server serving the jobs in the queues with spatially varying rates. For a fluid model of this system, we provide a necessary and sufficient stabilizability condition. Then we briefly investigate the question of server trajectory optimization for the problem of draining the initial fluid in two queues when no further arrivals occur. © 2008 IEEE.
