I am trying to work with mobilenodes, but I am having hard times trying to
comprehend the files that are used when we create mobilenode. Can anybody
guide me through it? Basically I want to know how a mobilenode is created
(not the node-config part), what are the functions that get called when we
work with mobilenode and where are those functions located?
And yes, I have been through the ns manual. Specifically my questions are:
1. When we create a mobilenode, what is the process that is followed, and
which files are involved in this? I assume Gridkeeper and PositionHandler
classes are used, but I want to know when and how are they used?
2. Which functions (which files) handle the movement that are generated once
we start simulations?
3. In the examples, I have not seen anyone declaring specifically a
mobilenode instance, then how does a node becomes mobilenode? I understand
the node - config part, but my question is how does it tells the simulator
that this node is a mobile node?
Any suggestions with explanations and pointer to the explanations will be
