The self-organizing and decentralized features of wireless mobile ad hoc
networks make them suitable for a wide variety of applications. In this
paper, we explore their use in rescue and relief applications in
emergency situations. We propose to study the efficiency of some routing
and MAC protocols under the Client-Server architecture. The presence of
dynamic and adaptive routing and MAC protocols will enable ad hoc
networks to be formed quickly, and ensure communications during the
rescue operations. Extensive simulations were performed to show the
impact of both the routing and MAC layer choice over multiple QoS
parameters (delay, throughput, energy, etc.) in small and large scales
rescue areas. We conclude the paper by some remarks that may be very
useful for the relevant agencies to enhance the efficiency of rescue and
relief operations.
