The mobility model represents the movement pattern of mobile nodes, position, velocity and acceleration with respect to time. Mobility management is a perilous issue in the wireless ad hoc network. Mobility model can be organized into two sorts: Entity Mobility Model (EMM) and Group Mobility Model (GMM). This paper presents a classification of GMM for wireless ad hoc network and their appropriate application with respect to GMM. Group motion happens repeatedly in an ad hoc network and further change in group motion parameters, the behavior of mobility model changes. Different GMM behaviors are observed and compared these models on different parameters. Further, it is reviewed to see that GMM can be easily adapted for existing applications.
