Sensors and sink node in a WSN network of NetSim are static in nature by default. However, mobility can be configured in the device general properties as shown below:
Attached herewith is an experiment file related to a simple WSN network scenario with 5 sensors and a sink node. No mobility is configured for the sensor nodes whereas the Random Walk mobility model is configured in the sink node.
Channel Characteristics is set to path loss only with log distance path loss model and path loss exponent of 2.5 in such a way that the sensors are placed out of range of each other.
All nodes have traffic to send to the Sink node. Whenever sink node comes closer to a sensor, a route is established and packets are sent.
The file-Based Mobility model can also be configured in the sink node, to input custom mobility patterns for a device using a mobility log file. Refer to Section 3.3.4 of the MANET technology library document for more details on the File-Based Mobility Model.
Note: Mobility is not supported in 6LoWPAN Gateway in IoT network since can have wired links. However, any of the sensor nodes can be configured with mobility.
