Designated “rescue sites” are equipped with a group of robotic vehicles to discover isolated mesh networks that have been established by HIRO-NET’s users.
When available within this group, aerial drones are elected for area exploration for their speed and ease of mobility over most terrains.
Once two isolated mesh networks have been discovered, “rescue sites” deploy a robotic mesh network to bridge and connect them.
Robots with longer battery lives than aerial drones, such as ground-based all-terrain tank-bots, are elected to provide long-term network connectivity to HIRO-NET’s users. At this stage, all of HIRO-NET’s users are connected, survivors and first respondents alike, and connected to the Internet.
