Abstract

Mobility is one of the most challenging issues in mobile Ad-Hoc networks which has a significant impact on performance of network protocols. To cope with this issue, the protocol designers should be able to analyze the movement of mobile nodes in a particular wireless network. In this paper, a new framework called Mobility Analyzer has been introduced for analysis and recognition of mobility traces. At first, the Mobility Analyzer acquires some mobility traces collected by GPS or generated with mobility simulators; then it calculates some mobility metrics which represent the movement behavior of the mobile nodes; finally it attempts to classify mobility traces into particular mobility models using a simple supervised learning method. Simulation results show high efficiency of this framework to classify mobility traces into different mobility classes.
