Abstract: The mobility of nodes in a wireless sensor network is a factor affecting the quality of service offered by this network. We think that the mobility of the nodes presents an opportunity where the nodes move in an appropriate manner. Therefore, the routing algorithms can benefit from this opportunity. Studying a model of mobility and adapt it to ensure an optimal routing in an agitated network is the purpose of our work. We are interested in applying a variant of the mobility model RWP (named routing-random waypoint 'R-RWP') on the whole network in order to maximise the coverage radius of the base station (which will be fixed in our study) and thus to optimise the data delivery end-to-end delay.

Keywords: wireless sensor networks; WSNs; mobility model; routing; random waypoint; RWP.
