Wireless mobile ad hoc networks can be used as a means to ease and support life in an ordinary house. As future home appliances will have many useful built-in functions, a communication network that allows a user to access these built-in functions and to control the appliances is highly desirable. This paper proposes a routing algorithm for mobility in a description-based clustered ad-hoc network where the nodes are given descriptions or keywords such as "living room TV", "kitchen oven", etc. as identifiers. In this paper, we discuss and compare the routing and the number of control messages required to achieve a higher message delivery success rate for frequent and infrequent communication of nodes with mobility. When communication is infrequent a search is performed for the destination regardless of mobility. The proposed algorithm handles mobility efficiently while ensuring a high accuracy on message delivery with the least amount of control messages.
