Improvement the Performance of Mobility Pattern in Mobile Ad-Hoc Sensor Network Using Qualnet 5.0
A mobile ad-hoc sensor network usually consists of large number of sensor nodes (stationary or mobile) deployed over an area to be monitored. Each sensor node is a self-contained, battery-powered device that is capable of sensing, communication and some level of computation and data processing. Due to the large amount usage of sensors in the network, it is important to keep each node small and inexpensive. This strictly restricts its resources in terms of energy, memory, processing speed bandwidth. The authors simulate the Mobile ad-hoc sensor network for its performance analysis. They introduced the concept of communication range remoteness for mobile nodes through random way point mobility model.
