This paper revolves around the concept of utilizing
the modern smartphone communication capabilities to transmit
messages through an ad hoc network during a disaster, which
renders the traditional cellular base station inaccessible. Due to
dynamic and decentralized nature of the considered environment,
epidemic algorithms present themselves as a suitable option
for message dissemination. We consider a specific scenario and
propose a modified epidemic routing protocol that could be useful
during natural disasters. We develop a simulation tool using
MATLAB to evaluate the influence of various factors on the
performance and cost of our modified epidemic routing protocol
in case of an emergency.
