Deterministic Mobility



The characteristics of the deterministic mobility model, purposeful deterministic mobility model, and deterministic mobility model with attractive points are described. These mobility models that are rarely used in the MANET are described for completeness in order to differentiate their behaviors with respect to the random mobility models.
