Data Traveling Random Direction using MANETs

In this work, we study both the availability and the duration probability of a routing path that is subject to link failures caused by node mobility. In particular, we focus on the case where the network nodes move according to the Random Direction model, and we derive both exact and approximate (but simple) expressions of these probabilities. Through our results, we study the problem of selecting an optimal route in terms of path availability.

In this work, we focus on the stability of a routing path, which is subject to link failures caused by node mobility. We define the path duration as the time interval from when the route is established until one of the links along the route becomes unavailable, while we say that a path is available. we focus on bi-dimensional random mobility and we consider nodes moving according to the Random Direction (RD) mobility model.
