Abstract: "In the performance evaluation of a protocol for an ad hoc network, the protocol should be tested under realistic conditions including, but not limited to, a sensible transmission range, limited buffer space for the storage of messages, representative data traffic models, and realistic movements of the mobile users (i.e., a mobility model). This paper is a survey of mobility models that are used in the simulations of ad hoc networks. We describe several mobility models that represent mobile nodes whose movements are independent of each other (i.e., entity mobility models) and several mobility models that represent mobile nodes whose movements are dependent on each other (i.e., group mobility models). The goal of this paper is to present a number of mobility models in order to offer researchers more informed choices when they are deciding upon a mobility model to use in their performance evaluations. Lastly, we present simulation results that illustrate the importance of choosing a mobility model in the simulation of an ad hoc network protocol. Specifically, we illustrate how the performance results of an ad hoc network protocol drastically change as a result of changing the mobility model simulated."

Abstract: "Recently, the world has become increasingly mobile, and people have started communicating by wireless networking. Mobile IPv6 enables mobile users to communicate with each other while moving. In this study, a mobile IPv6 network was implemented by the IEEE 802. 11 specification, and its performance was analyzed using TCP and UDP applications. The experimental results indicate that throughput stabilized for UDP applications after about 6-14 seconds. However, TCP applications were found to stabilize throughput in 10-20 seconds. The evaluation results reveal that TCP applications perform less well in mobile IPv6 networking than UDP applications."

Abstract: "This paper reports a new novel low-cost, wireless communication network system, called the "Electronic Shepherd" (ES). The system is innovative in the way that it supports flock behavior, meaning that a flock leader monitors the state of the other elements in the flock using low-cost radio communication equipment. The paper addresses both details of the terminal devices and communication protocols, as well as testing of the system in a real environment. The ES system was originally made to address special needs for sheep and reindeer farmers who were seeking a system to keep track of their animals during the grazing season. The system, including GPS receivers, UHF radio communication transceivers and GPRS modems, contributes a new approach for low-cost networking and service implementation, not only for the purpose of animal tracking, but also for other applications where objects are to be monitored at a low cost.

Abstract: “In this work we present a performance comparison study between SIFT (Simple Forwarding over Trajectory), an innovative and scalable trajectory-based approach, and DREAM (Distance Routing Effect Algorithm for Mobility), a stable, largely tested position-based scheme. In the literature, the latest studies indicate that control overhead is the most important drawback that routing protocols must face. Classical ad hoc routing schemes do not perform well in MANETS (Mobile Ad hoc Networks) because they were not designed to handle efficiently mobility handicaps. Position-based forwarding techniques perform better in highly dynamic scenarios, reducing control overhead consequences, but there may be some highly dynamic scenarios where they do not perform efficiently. Trajectory-based forwarding protocols solve the overhead problem and, thus, they perform efficiently in MANETS. Our study demonstrates that SIFT performs better than DREAM concerning delivery ratio, control overhead and route length in terms of number of hops. Its main handicap could be, a priori, the delivery delay. However, even if delay may be high in SIFT, control overhead may also causes even higher delivery delay in DREAM.”
