Abstract


  • In disaster environments, due to the destruction of local communication

    infrastructures, wireless mobile agents (robots) are employed to search and

    deploy to establish ad hoc networks. With the guidance of the network, first responders

    can efficiently perform tasks in disaster environments. However, due to

    the uncertainties and complexities of disaster environments and the limited capabilities

    of wirelessmobile agents, it is challenging to apply wireless mobile agents

    to disaster environments in both theory and practice. To this end, a task-based

    wireless mobile agents search and deployment approach is proposed for ad hoc

    network establishment in disaster environments. The proposed approach consists

    of a search module and a deployment module. The search module enables wireless

    mobile agents to efficiently move and collect information in an unknown and

    complex disaster environment. The deployment module enables wireless mobile

    agents to find suitable deployment locations based on the collected information.

    The ad hoc networks established by the proposed approach can guarantee the

    communications of wireless mobile agents in ad hoc networks. In addition, it can

    cover the maximum number of tasks and maximum size of area in the disaster environment.

    The experimental results demonstrate the advantages of the proposed

    approach in terms of wireless mobile agents search and deployment for ad hoc

    network establishment in disaster environments.
