Quote from UCLA Today:
“In a world where people already feel over-connected by cell phones, the Internet, iPods and PDAs, it’s easy to take the power to communicate for granted. But these connections are a lot more fragile than one might imagine.
In the frenzied aftermath of Sept. 11 and hurricane-ravaged New Orleans, communication lifelines were suddenly cut off completely for emergency personnel when infrastructure was destroyed.
That’s one of the primary reasons why public agencies such as the California Department of Transportation are paying close attention to a project led by Computer Science Professor Mario Gerla at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science.”
