Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a collection of intelligent sensors that can communicate to form a self-organizing network and can function without human intervention for a long amount of time. Traditionally, WSN was static, but due to the necessity of today's applications, there has been a paradigm shift from a static WSN to dynamic WSN. This dynamism can be realized by adding mobility to static WSN. Mobility can be added by introducing extra elements called Mobile Entities (MEs) like Mobile Sinks (MSs), Mobile Cluster Heads (MCHs), Mobile Relays (MRs) and Mobile Sensor Nodes (MSNs).
