User-Centric Mobility Models for Opportunistic Networking [chapter]

Chiara Boldrini, Marco Conti, Andrea Passarella
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Therefore, we describe a new mobility model (Home-cell Community-based Mobility Model, HCMM) that takes both properties into account, i.e., social relationships and attraction of physical places.  ...  In this chapter we survey the most recent proposals for modelling user mobility in mobile pervasive networks, and specifically in opportunistic networks.  ...  The work in [25] describes the Community-based Mobility Model (CMM). In CMM every node belongs to a social community (group).  ...

Social Implications of Mobile Telephony: The Rise of Personal Communication Society

Scott W. Campbell, Yong Jin Park
2008 Sociology Compass  
This essay argues that the widespread diffusion and use of mobile telephony is iconic of a shift toward a new 'personal communication society', evidenced by several key areas of social change, including  ...  symbolic meaning of the technology, new forms of coordination and social networking, personalization of public spaces, and the mobile youth culture.  ...  Planning social activities is a priority for many teens and young adults, and the 'real-time' nature of mobile communication plays a vital role in this process.  ...

Agent Perception Modeling for Movement in Crowds [chapter]

Katayoun Farrahi, Kashif Zia, Alexei Sharpanskykh, Alois Ferscha, Lev Muchnik
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper explores the integration of a perception map to an agent based model simulated on a realistic physical space.  ...  Each agent's perception map stores density information about the physical space which is used for routing. The scenario considered is the evacuation of a space given a crowd.  ...  Towards this, a social simulation should model the "process" influencing the buildup of a social network.  ...

MOBILE TIME AS A BLESSING OR A CURSE: PERCEPTIONS OF SMARTPHONE USE AND PERSONAL TIME AMONG GENERATION GROUPS IN ESTONIA

V Kalmus, A Masso, S Opermann, K Täht
2018 Trames  
Although the literature has paid a lot of attention to the importance of mobile digital media in shaping people's perception of personal and social time, little empirical research has focused on these  ...  identity and communication conventions.  ...  Mobile and smart devices not merely opened new possibilities for greater mobility and flexibility in space and time; they have become 'ingrained into social life' (Westlund 2014:135) in a way no previous  ...

Impact of ICT-mediated collective awareness on urban mobility

Kashif Zia, Alois Ferscha, Ahmad Din, Khurram Shahzad, Awais Majeed
2016 Complex Adaptive Systems Modeling  
A distributed multi-agent system is developed to model a real-life urban mobility environment. The model is then simulated using a large scale parallel computing platform.  ...  Methods: This work establishes an interplay between social and technological aspects of awareness by augmenting a model-driven framework of a realistic information eco-system.  ...  The space and mobility model The mobility model adopted in this work is categorized as an urban pedestrian mobility model. Usually, two ways are used to build such a model (Vogt et al. 2012 ).  ...
