A Mobility Model for the Realistic Simulation of Social Context

Daniel Fischer
Simulation is a fundamental means for evaluating mobile applications based on ad-hoc networks. In recent years, the new breed of social mobility models (SMMs) has risen. Contrary to most classical mobility models, SMMs model the social aspects of human mobility, i.e. which users meet, when and how often. Such information is indispensable for the simulation of a wide range of socially-aware communication protocols mostly based on delay-tolerant networks, including opportunistic ad-hoc routing and data dissemination...
