AbstractWhen analyzing dissemination protocols in mobile ad-hoc networks
the underlying mobility model is an important factor because it strongly
in°uences the performance of these protocols. So far most of the re-
search only dealt with homogeneous mobility models like the very com-
mon Random Waypoint Mobility Model and the Random Walk Mobility
Model. In this paper we introduce a new model, the Area Graph-based
Mobility Model, which considers the major characteristics of realistic sce-
narios like their heterogeneity. By analyzing the results of experiments
using di®erent broadcast protocols and by comparing our model to the
Random Waypoint Mobility Model we examine the characteristics of the
Area Graph-based Mobility Model. Furthermore we show, that in hetero-
geneous scenarios you should use adaptive broadcast protocols, otherwise
an e±cient dissemination in areas with di®ering topologies and densities
is not possible.
