Large-scale disaster management applications are among the several realistic applications of the Internet of Things (IoT). Fire detection and earthquake early warning applications are just two examples. Several IoT devices are used in such applications, e.g., sensors and robots. These sensors and robots are usually heterogeneous. Moreover, in disaster scenarios, the existing communication infrastructure may become completely or partially destroyed, leaving mobile ad-hoc networks the only…
