Geographic Constraint Mobility

  • Radhika Ranjan Roy


The geographical constraint mobility models where the movement patterns of mobile nodes are influenced by geographical constraints in real-life scenarios like freeways , local streets , buildings , or many other obstacles are described here. Three classes of GCM mobility models are presented: obstacle mobility , community-based obstacle mobility , and Voronoi -based mobility . The description, analysis, and simulation results for each mobility class are explained along with their pros and cons for using over the MANET .
