Towards mobility as a network control primitive
In the near future, the advent of large-scale networks of mobile agents autonomously performing long-term sensing and communication tasks will be upon us. However, using controlled node mobility to improve communication performance is a capability that the mobile networking community has not yet investigated. In this paper, we study mobility as a network control primitive. More specifically, we present the first mobility control scheme for improving communication performance in such networks. Our scheme is completely distributed, requiring each node to possess only local information. Our scheme is self-adaptive, being able to transparently encompass several modes of operation, each respectively improving power efficiency for one unicast flow, multiple unicast flows, and many-to-one concast flows. We provide extensive evaluations on the feasibility of mobility control, showing that controlled mobility can improve network performance in many scenarios. This work constitutes a novel appl...
