We introduce a model for simulating the movement of semi-autonomous mobile units that exhibit swarm-based behaviour and collectively form a mobile ad-hoc communication network. The mobility model is used to study how the topological properties of the resulting communication network change over time. The connectivity graphs are determined by allowing each unit to communicate with others inside a given radius. By varying the free parameters of the mobility model, qualitatively different regimes… CONTINUE READING
