For the last few years, Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is getting publicity due to its versatile applications. There are many factors that impact the performance evaluation of mobile networks. A mobility model is one of the factors affecting network in a very significant way. A mobility model dictates the movement of the nodes within the network. This paper aims to study several mobility models that represent mobile nodes whose movements are independent of each other (i.e., entity and group mobility models) and determine their characteristics, weakness and strengths.
