Mobility Prediction for Delay Reduction in WLAN Using Location Tracking and Data Mining
Prediction of mobile path of a mobile node is of great importance since it reduces the handoff delays incurred during the handoff procedure. The proposed system is called Predictive Mobility Management scheme. The authors track the movement of mobile nodes by location tracking and data mining. In location tracking, they continuously monitor the movement of mobile node. The movement of mobile nodes can be predicted by the direction of movement of mobile nodes and previous path history which can be obtained by data mining techniques. The data mining technique is used to search the path history of mobile node and uses this information to predict the future movement of mobile node. NG pruning scheme can be used for prediction along with location tracking.
