A 2-D Random Walk Based Mobility Model for Location Tracking
Performance analysis of different location tracking schemes needs a model that reflects the mobility of the mobile terminals in a realistic way. We propose a two-dimensional random walk based model with inertia for performance analysis of different location management schemes with specific update and paging mechanism.We used our mobility model to analyze the cost of movement-based location update technique with selective paging. We extend the model to have different values for inertia of motion and inertia of rest.
