Recent publications in information theory demonstrated that mobility can increase the capacity of wireless ad hoc networks. More precisely, the throughput per source-destination pair can be kept constant as the density of nodes increases. Indeed, such enhancements are achievable as the node mobility provides a sort of multi-user diversity. Considering an analytical study as a starting point, in this paper we propose and evaluate a distributed scheduling policy for dense and highly mobile ad hoc networks. Moreover, simulation results to show the benefit of mobility on the network capacity are provided.
