Load Density Analysis of Mobile Coordinator in a Hexagonal Configuration
The Mobility of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has become a hot research theme in recent years due to its wide range of applications. The widely adopted standard for wireless sensor network platform is IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee due to low-power, cost-effective communication and the reliability they provide. In this paper, the authors perform extensive network evaluation, to study the Effect of coordinator mobility on ZigBee mesh network, using OPNET Modeler 14.5. In mobile coordinator, the type of the trajectory along with the node density and the traffic are the major factors that decide the system performance.
