dc.description.abstractIn spite of the significant advancements in wireless connectivity, the static form of the network infrastructure cannot guarantee an uninterrupted operation of the ever-growing wireless consumer electronics in emergency situations such as natural disasters. In such occasions, employing flexible aerial nodes can tackle this issue by recovering the communication rapidly, when the need for connectivity is of utmost importance. In this paper, we study the use of aerial nodes for communication recovery after a communication breakdown. We provide an analytical model of the recovery probability that demonstrates the capabilities of such networks. In the performance evaluation, we show the effects of the altitude and the distance between the aerial nodes on the recovery probability and verify them with simulations. Moreover, we introduce our testbed and preliminary experimental work that shows promising results for aerial networks. Finally, we discuss useful insights for the network design and present some open issues that exist in this field.
