Abstract:Mobility patterns of first responders (FRs) in incident scene have distinct properties from patterns of other human groups, such as drivers on road and college students on campus. FRs are mission-oriented. They are organized, cooperative and responsive to emergency situations. Although emergency responding is one of the major applications of mobile ad hoc networks, it is regrettable to note that most of existing mobility models fail to capture these unique properties of first responders. Therefore, protocols, evaluated under unrealistic mobility patterns in simulation, present incorrect estimated performance in real deployed networks. In this paper, we propose a novel mobility model, CORPS, which captures both environmental and operational determinants for FRs’ movement. CORPS is an event-driven mobility model with event-oriented characterization. Experiments show that CORPS reflects mission-oriented operational logistics of FRs and yields distinct topology characteristics and application performance.
