This letter studies the effect of node mobility on application-level QoS of audio-video multipath streams in wireless ad hoc networks. The audio-video streams are transmitted with the MultiPath streaming scheme with Media Synchronization control (MPMS), which was previously proposed by the authors. We perform computer simulation with a grid topology network of IEEE 802.11b including two mobile nodes. The simulation results show that MPMS is effective in achieving high application-level QoS in mobile networks as well.
