Topology control algorithms in mobile ad-hoc networks aim to reduce the power consumption while keeping the topology connected. These algorithms can preserve network resources and increase network capacity. However, few efforts have focused on the issue of topology control in presence of node mobility. One of the notable mobility aware topology control protocols is the “Mobility Aware Distributed Topology Control Protocol”. The main drawback of this protocol is on its mobility prediction method. This prediction method assumes linear movements and is unable to cope with sudden changes in the mobile node movements. In this paper, we propose a pattern matching based mobility prediction method in which every mobile node predicts its future location through finding similar patterns in its history of movements. Simulation results show significant improvements in terms of prediction accuracy and power consumption compared to the other known algotithms.
