For assessing different routing protocols for MANETs, it is important to have some index or quantitative measure of mobility that is relevant to the performance of the network. In this paper, we proposed a mobility measure that is "canonical" in that it is flexible and consistent. It is flexible because one can customize the definition for relevant mobility using a remoteness function. It is consistent because the mobility measure has the same linear relationship to the link change rate for a wide range of mobility scenarios.
