Swarm Group Mobility Model

  • Radhika Ranjan Roy


The swarm group mobility model that generates the realistic movements of living creatures or objects controlled by living creatures by mimicking perception, physics, and psychological behaviors is described. The SGM model is applied to mobile ad hoc networks because traditional mobility models like RW and RWP are not suitable in many realistic scenarios of the MANET. The simulation experimental results are provided verifying the analytical model.
