Abstract

In this paper, we seek to improve understanding of the structure of human mobility, with a view to using this for designing algorithms for the dissemination of data among mobile users. We analyse community structures and node centrality from the human mobility traces and use these two metrics to design efficient forwarding algorithms in terms of delivery ratio and delivery cost for mobile networks. This is the first empirical study of community and centrality using real human mobility datasets.
