In large scale disasters like earth quake it is necessary to undertake post disaster mitigation activities abruptly in order to for reduce damage and for early post-disaster rehabilitation and reconstruction. This paper proposes a design framework for an optimal control strategy to efficiently perform surveillance over a wide disaster hit area using a network of flying robots to determine the extent of damage promptly. The main focus of the paper is to develop an adaptive and energy efficient routing strategy with less power dissipation and delay compared to traditional routing algorithms. This protocol efficiently determines the best route by taking account of the residual energy, signal strength and various environmental factors. Simulation results show that the proposed routing scheme achieves much higher performance than the classical routing protocols. © 2012 IEEE.
