Mobility support technologies are much more versatile than traditional technologies as they can be applied to any scenario and combined with other algorithms, modeling, and technologies. Commonly, mobility related elements in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are mobile sensor nodes, mobile anchor nodes, mobile data collectors, mobile sinks, and so forth. This special issue contains thirteen papers, of which four are related to the location algorithms based on the WSNs, five are related to the data share, data collection, and exchange, and three cover the routing of WSNs.
