Modeling the Sociological Characteristic of Vehicle Mobility in Vehicular Sensor Network
Many mobility models have been proposed for the simulation of vehicular sensor network, however, the existing models seldom consider the sociological Aspects of vehicle movement. The paper firstly analyzed the social characteristic of mobility of the real vehicular traces and gained the conclusion that is short average distance, limited node degree and high cluster coefficient. Based on it, a mobility model based social network is proposed and turned into a simulation, which consists of growing and evolvement of social networks, geographical location mapping of vehicles and node dynamics. The simulation results proved that the model’s characteristic is similar to real trace.
