The spatial node distribution of the random waypoint mobility model

Christian Bettstetter and Christian Wagner


The random waypoint model is a frequently used mobility model for simulation-based studies of wireless ad hoc networks. This paper investigates the spatial node distribution that results from using this model. We show and interpret simulation results on a square and circular system area, derive an analytical expression of the expected node distribution in one dimension, and give an approximation for the two-dimensional case. Finally, the concept of attraction areas and a modified random waypoint model, the random borderpoint model, is analyzed by simulation.
