Knowledge-Driven Mobility Model



We describe the knowledge-driven mobility model that exploits the knowledge of mobility of users, nodes, hosts, and services all together and allows communications among the mobile hosts moving in a predictable way for preserving connectivity. The disconnection scheme of the KDM model that can be predicted with the priori knowledge of mobility patterns is explained. The KDM system architecture, mobility algorithm for maintaining connectivity, and simulations results are also provided.
