A structured group mobility model for the simulation of mobile ad hoc networks
Realistic models for node movement are essential in simulating mobile ad hoc networks. Many MANET scenarios are most realistically represented using group movement, but existing group movement models depict individual group members as independent actors moving randomly. For many scenarios however, group movement implies a common goal or orientation, and hence an inherent structure to the group. We show that this structure can be defined a-priori, and that knowledge of it will result in more accurate simulations. This paper presents the Structured Group Mobility Model (SGMM), which parameterizes group structure and generates movement sequences for use in simulations. We define the model and demonstrate how such a model of node mobility may be used in creating simulations of several MANET scenarios. We compare simulations using the SGMM with other models using various routing algorithms. Our preliminary results indicate that accurate representation of group structure has a significan...
