Abstract:This paper revolves around the concept of utilizing the modern smartphone communication capabilities to transmit messages through an ad hoc network during a disaster, which renders the traditional cellular base station inaccessible. Due to dynamic and decentralized nature of the considered environment, epidemic algorithms present themselves as a suitable option for message dissemination. We consider a specific scenario and propose a modified epidemic routing protocol that could be useful during natural disasters. We develop a simulation tool using MATLAB to evaluate the influence of various factors on the performance and cost of our modified epidemic routing protocol in case of an emergency.
