Many researchers have been conducted on MANET related to performance measurement of various routing protocols. While measuring the performance of these protocols, during simulation an important factor to be considered is the mobility pattern of nodes in given area. Various research studies have considered a specific mobility pattern of nodes and under that pattern the performance of different protocols is measured. Still it is required to know which routing protocol perform better in different environment and different nodes mobility pattern of movement with different velocity. In MANET nodes are free to move anywhere in network and can join or leave the network arbitrarily the mobility pattern of nodes has a crucial impact on the performance of routing protocols.
