Abstract: Research on the mobility models for wireless sensor networks has been an interesting area of networking. As a result, researchers over the past few years have measured the performance of mobility models by applying protocols through various simulation tools for wireless sensor networks. Wireless sensor network is a group of sensing devices which are geographically distributed that monitor the condition around it such as physical or environmental which communicates wirelessly to cooperatively pass data to the main location. The goal of the proposed work is to provide researchers with clear idea about the available mobility models for wireless sensor network performance which can be investigated on various available simulation tools with several metrics of sensor networks. Hence, we attempt to provide an overview of the current research status for wireless sensor network mobility models.
Keywords: Mobility Model, WSN, Performance Metrics, Simulation Tools, Routing Protocols.
