ReDiCom: Resilient Communications for Dynamic First Responder Teams in Disasters Demo
Our demo of ReDiCom capabilities combines the research we have completed across the members of our team on this project, including device-to-device communication, message delivery on a graph-based namespace, text messages, push-to-talk, and work offloading. This year, our demo will include several functional enhancements: -A map function that allows first responders to distribute tasks, mark important task location information, and communicate based on each individual's geo-location. It will use the graph-based namespace for both hierarchies (topic hierarchy and recipient hierarchy) and take advantage of a consensus protocol that seeks to achieve synchronization even with intermittent network connectivity. -A dynamic routing protocol design and implementation that enables unicast delivery of messages between first responders as well as victims. The protocol uses heterogeneous device to device (D2D) links via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), and can handle disconnections causing partitions and extended delays in the underlying D2D topology.
