Emergency and disaster operation require the computing devices in the zone to operate smoothly and uninterruptedly i.e. they must have the capacity to tolerate faults in the disaster. The mobile computing during the disaster faces challenges such as network or service unavailability, mobile device hardware failure and user incapacity to compute. This paper proposes a novel method to address this issue by using a distributed intelligence method called swarm intelligence. The mobile devices collaborate through ad-hoc networks, stimulus response model and resource sharing to minimize the degraded computing system.
