MANET, Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork is a special kind of wireless network that consists of group of mobile nodes that communicate each other. The fundamental characteristic which differentiates MANETs from other wireless or wired networks is mobility. It forms a temporary network without aid of any standalone infrastructure or centralized administration. The nodes are free to move randomly and organized themselves arbitrarily. In this paper, the authors will study the effect of various mobility models on the performance of three routing protocols DSDV, DSR and AODV using network simulation tool NS2.
