An RPL Performance Study under Different Independent Mobility Model Variants


  • J.N.V.R. Swarup Kumar, D. Suresh


As of now the usage of mobility has been growing rapidly in every communication application, such as vehicle to vehicle communication (VANETs), military, medical care, manufacturing industries, etc. whatever it may be the usage of mobility has become an important part of that application. As the demand is increasing day by day, the only question is that how the mobility applications are dependent on IPv6 Routing Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks (RPL), because the IPv6 Routing Protocol enables the routers to exchange information about connected networks. This paper concentrate on appraising RPL performance under different independent mobility models. In this paper, the RPL performance is going to be evaluated in two different ways and they are static sink and sensor nodes, sink mobility and static sensor nodes. All these network strategies are going to be evaluated in the Cooja simulator. Here the sensor network consists of 10, 20, 30 nodes and one sink node respectively. Here the RPL performancein a network is going to be evaluated in terms of Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR) and the consumption of power.
