Data Evacuation for Wireless Sensor Networks in Disaster Areas

Xiaomin Wang, Ming Liu, and Bang Liu
Abstract—With the increasing incidence of disasters, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been widely proposed to provide information for post-disaster relief operations. However, the normal assumption in pervious schemes that the deployed sensor networks can tolerate the damage caused by disasters is invalid. In reality, many significant data are blocked and eventually lost when the connectivity and coverage of WSNs are destroyed. In this paper, we demonstrate Data Evacuation (DE), a system which takes advantage of the survival time of the WSN to transmit critical data to sensor nodes in the safe area.

Index Terms—Post-disaster application, data evacuation, sensor networks.
