Christian Raffelsberger and Hermann Hellwagner, "A Hybrid MANET-DTN Routing Scheme For Emergency Response Scenarios," Proceedings of 11th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2013), Los Alamitos, CA, March 2013, pp. 505-510.


Emergency response operations are a promising application area for mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs). Most existing MANET routing protocols assume that an end-toend path between and destination can be established. However, this assumption may not hold in a hastily formed network established during an emergency response. This paper evaluates a store-and-forward mechanism for proactive routing protocols to mitigate the effects of network disruptions. The mechanism is integrated into two routing protocols. The modified protocols are evaluated in an emergency response scenario that includes a disaster area mobility model and protocols., a wireless obstacle model. The scenario represents a realistic first responder operation after an incident in a chemical facility. The evaluation results show that networks for disaster responses benefit from the modified routing source.
