Abstract

Peer-to-peer opportunistic communication between mobile devices carried by humans without using any infrastructure is largely unexploited. The encounter pattern of the devices depends on human mobility pattern which is governed by human social behaviour. Individuals belong to multiple communities. These social ties significantly affect humans’ movement pattern. Traditional mobility models, such as Random Way Point (RWP) and Brownian Motion (BM), model device mobility as random. However, researchers have shown that human mobility is rarely random and such models do not provide a reliable analysis of network protocol performance. Various characteristics of human mobility are derived in the literature from mobility traces and social network theory. None of the mobility models in the literature incorporate all of them. In this paper, Proximity and Community Aware Heterogeneous Human Mobility (P-CAHM) model is proposed incorporating all of these characteristics.
