Abstract

The appropriateness of mobile devices in emergency rescue operations cannot be over-emphasized, their computational capabilities can be harnessed as their weight, size and mobility support the nomadic nature of man. PDAs and smart phones come with moderate-sized processors that only make them available for limited computational purposes, These resource starved devices are now becoming useful tools for handling resource intensive computational problems through the concept of cyberforaging which is a mechanism that augments the computational and storage capabilities of mobile devices. In this paper, a cyberforaging-based resource allocation tool which can assist Incident managers in resource allocation and transportation for multiple simultaneous incidents was developed.
