This paper proposes one scheme for selecting neighborhood and fuzzy based distributed movement algorithm for maintaining neighborhood topology during movement of the network. All the nodes are enabled with GPS. All the nodes will periodically broadcast their position and velocity information obtained through the GPS. After receiving the information from the other nodes, a node will first decides its neighboring nodes. Once neighborhood selection is done, the whole network will start their movement. During movement, each and every node is responsible to maintain its initial neighborhood intact.
