Abstract

Rapid-deployment mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) are frequently characterized by common over-arching mission objectives which predicate a cooperativeness on the part of constituent nodes. In this article we present a new strategy to improve MANET communications based on node cooperation with respect to mobility. We present our model for cooperative mobility, and use this cost-benefit framework to explore the impact of cooperation in MANETs where nodes are-to varying extents - willing to be moved for the common good. We develop an effective centralized algorithm for mobility planning based on multigrid techniques. Our simulation results are compelling and demonstrate that the communication infrastructure-specifically, connection bit error rate-can be significantly improved by leveraging this proposed scheme.
