MoNoTrac: A Mobile Node Trace Generator

Bastian Blywis, Felix Shzu-Juraschek, Mesut Güneş, Christian Graff— 2009

Mobility is a core feature of future networks, e.g., wireless sensor, wireless mesh, and mobile ad-hoc networks. Thus the ability to generate accurate traces of mobile nodes is an important aspect for wireless network research. Many publications regarding wireless networks rely on simulations. The applied mobility models are often highly abstract and emulate human behavior poorly. Graph-based approaches try to restrict the area of movement to street-like structures yet they do not model real environments. MoNoTrac is a work-in-progress framework to create mobility traces based on real maps provided by emph{OpenStreetMaps}. Its plug-in architecture allows the usage of custom mobility models and provides simplified access for research in the domain of mobile networks.
