At time of crisis, relief teams must have assured connectivity, not only just within the team but also across different service agencies in the area. Since emergency agencies and essential services always send service cars to affected zones, advanced technologies and computing resources aboard these vehicles can be pooled together to boost network capacity temporarily, just where it is crucially needed. These vehicles become automotive virtual edge communicators (AVECs). They are managed by a vehicular inter-agency service orchestration and resourcing (ViSOR) system that creates transient proximity-based “trust circles” to manage novel cooperative hosting, opportunistic virtualization, and “car sourcing” of crisis zone data. This study evaluates the feasibility for this challenging but highly rewarding concept and identifies gaps in emerging technologies.
