Group Force Mobility



The group force mobility model that can take care of the environmental changes such as collision avoidance and congestion in the group mobility in terms of exerting forces is explained. We have described how the GFMM can simulate more realistic mobility adapting to an environment stimuli. In addition, the simulation results are compared between the GFMM and the RPGM.
