If we give routers the ability to move, they no longer have to sit idly in a non-optimal position. They can make their own decisions to attempt to improve the efficacy of themselves or the network. In our work, we will focus on how a router can use local information to try and better its contribution to the network. Our main contribution is the development of simple movement strategies that a robot router can employ to try and improve the network. Our long term goal is to understand the role that mobility can play in improving wireless networks.
