Wireless optical nodes with mobility capabilities (mobile free space optics [FSO]) have emerged as a way to overcome
limitations inherent in FSO links, for example, transmitterreceiver restrictive alignment requirement. This paper proposes
the use of an angular diversity model for characterizing the performance of mobile FSO over atmospheric turbulence, and
transmitterreceiver misalignment switch-and-examine combining technique is suggested for a diversity combining under
