2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This article surveys mobility patterns and mobility models for wirelss networks. Mobility patterns are classified into the following types: pedestrians, vehicles, aerial, dynamic medium, robot, and outer space motion. We present the characteristics of each and shortly mention the specific problems. We shortly present the specifics of cellular networks, mobile ad hoc networks, and sensor networks regarding mobility. Then, we present the most important mobility models from the literature. At last
more » ... we give a brief discussion about the state of research regarding mobility in wireless networks.
