The paper of mobile ad hoc networks depends on understanding protocols from simulations before applying them in a real-world setting. The production of a real-world environment within which an ad hoc network can be formed among a set of nodes requires the development of a realistic, generic, and comprehensive mobility model to replace random models. Realistic mobility models consist of three sub-models. One of these sub-model is signal obstruction sub-model. Realistic mobility model have previously been proposed and include the Obstacle Mobility Model and the Pathway Mobility Model.
