Proceedings of the 6th International Conference LDIC 2020, S. 310-317, 2018.


Catastrophic natural disasters have the strong negative impact on the economy and mankind around the globe. As transportation and communication play an important role in such situations, we develop an emergency response system for disaster management with the focus on land transport vessels and mobile rescue team members. We present a prototype of an emergency response system using Global Positioning System (GPS) and Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs), which includes a server (control room), that is used to collect the information about the disaster area and is also used to provide the desired services according to the request.
