Gravity Mobility

  • Radhika Ranjan Roy


The gravity mobility model that is a part of the composite scalable mobility model is explained. The spatial and temporal behavior of the composite SMM that is composed of gravity and fluid-flow mobility model are analyzed in detail deriving the analytical model. The disaster gravity mobility model , an extension of the gravity model , is also explained how it uses events to emit forces that attract or repel objects depending on the object’s role .
