Rapid Response Mesh Wi-Fi Clouds Could Augment Disaster Aid
Swarming micro air vehicles may be the natural disaster recovery agents of the future.
A team of Scientists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology have engineered a quick way to establish wireless networks using flying robots. These swarming robots would be of benefit to disaster response teams whose first port of call in the wake of catastrophe is to establish radio or mobile communication networks to coordinate the search for survivors. Currently these networks have limited transmission capacity and require specialist knowledge to set up.
