Models for Realistic Mobility and RadioWave Propagation for Ad-hoc Network Simulations

Mesut Güneş, Martin Wenig— 2009

An ad-hoc network is realized by mobile devices which communicate over radio. Since, experiments with real devices are very difficult simulation is used very often. Among many other important properties which have to be defined for simulative experiments the mobility model and the radio propagation model has to be selected carefully. Both have strong impact on the performance of mobile ad-hoc networks, e.g. the performance of routing protocols changes with these models. There are many mobility and radio propagation models proposed in literature. Each of them was developed with different intentions and is not suited for every scenario. In this chapter we introduce well known models for mobility and radio propagation and discuss their advantages, drawbacks and limitations in respect to the simulation of mobile ad-hoc networks.
