Paper Title:
A Purpose-Driven User Mobility Model for Opportunistic Networks
  Abstract

An opportunistic Network is a network consisting exclusively of users’ mobile devices, with mobility being one of its essential features. Under the circumstances that a path may never exist between the two sides of communication, an opportunistic network exploits node mobility to realize delayed data delivery by capturing the opportunities of node meeting to relay messages. Designing efficient data forwarding strategies is one of the most challenging tasks in opportunistic network research, while currently the validation of any protocol for data forwarding almost absolutely relies on simulations of which node mobility models are one of the fundamental components. In this paper, we suggest a purpose-driven user mobility model for opportunistic networks which, to our best knowledge, is the first work considering the factor of purposes behind users’ movement. On the basis of location functionalization, our model can gain a better approximation of human movement patterns.
