Mobility drastically decreases the connectivity of ad hoc networks as compared to a network with consistent dispersed nodes. A network can be simulated for routing protocol performance using different available mobility models. But for our scenario development under non-deterministic dynamic movement of nodes, none of the already existing models provides adequate functionality. Therefore the focus of study in this research is to develop a predictive mobility model that provides predictive routes by enabling network to access mobile node through existing and previous multipoint relays (MPRs). The predictive routes in routing tables thus guarantee minimum chances of data or packet loss for that mobile node, by deploying the concept of redundant MPRs. We illustrate our proposed algorithm with the help of an example. Future directions are also given at the end.
