Ad-hoc wireless network for Emergency Workers

File:Mica x220.jpg

Ad-hoc wireless networks may soon tell emergency workers how to deploy transmitters.

Building an on-the-fly wireless communications networks is a vital part of firefighting, handling hostage situations, and dealing with other emergencies. But it is difficult to build such networks quickly and reliably.

Soon these emergency wireless networks could help build themselves. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently presented details of two experimental networks that tell emergency workers when to set down wireless transmitters to ensure a good signal.
