Realistic mobility models can demonstrate more precise evaluation results because their parameters are closer to the reality. In this paper a realistic Fuzzy Mobility Model has been proposed. This model has rules which are changeable depending on nodes and environmental conditions. It seems that this model is more complete than other mobility models.
After simulation, it was found out that not only considering nodes movement as being imprecise (fuzzy) has a positive effects on most of ad hoc network parameters, but also, more importantly as they are closer to the real world condition, they can have a more positive effect on the implementation of ad hoc network protocols.
