Smooth Random Mobility

  • Radhika Ranjan Roy


The characteristics of the smooth random mobility model are described through derivation of the analytical model. The model describes how the correlation between the speed and the direction is used to provide the smooth movement patterns that are more realistic to be used in the real-life scenarios of mobile nodes of the MANET . The concept of speed control based on the target speeds is also described. The analytical methodology for encounter -related statistics is derived for hitting time , meeting time , inter-meeting time, and contact duration for a general class of mobility models with applications to SRM and RWP .
