Abstract: Wireless ad-hoc networks are unplanned, quickly deployable, infrastructureless, and realistic for networking in emergency or restricted situations. They have actively been studied and proposed for post-disaster recovery. Our approach uses Linux Live USB nodes, which can be any available laptop computer at disaster-affected site, to boot the guest OS using USB flash drive with a variety of customized software packages demanded in post- disaster situations. Using an additional Wi-Fi USB adapter, Linux Live USB nodes help to ...
