Mesh Formation

Immediately after a disaster, users activate the HIRO-NET application on their smart device (iOS or Android). HIRO-NET automatically begins the first phase of establishing a self-organizing local mesh network connecting nearby survivors via Wi-Fi and BLE. The current HIRO-NET prototype is built upon the Bridgefy SDK and provides a novel energy-aware OS-independent algorithm that creates an efficient topology, and allows Internet-connected peers to share Internet with the entire network.
