—In areas characterized by long duration
partitioning ranging from few minutes to few hours, routing is a
common problem. Various routing Schemes, both deterministic
and Stochastic have been proposed in literature. Some of the
routing schemes are built around different types of Delay
Tolerant Network Routing Contacts viz Persistent Contact,
Opportunistic Contact, Scheduled Contact, Predicted Contact
and On-Demand Contact (POSOP) whereas some are not. But it
appears majority of these routing schemes are more idealistic in
nature and fail to touch the human lives by solving their day to
day problem. It can said with full conviction because when
extensive survey was carried out by exploring the mountainous
track and natural geographical terrain of Uttarakhand
region(state in republic of India) it was found that villagers of
remote villages and hamlets like Barkot, Harsil, Chamoli etc.,
were suffering from the acute shortage of quality drinking
water and urgent medical care. Now can DTN touch this aspect
of human lives and provide the solution to their problem? , the
answer is not easy to come by. But in this paper we study this
problem, explores the application of proposed POSOP Contacts
and present our work through mobile application developed
through MobiOne Design Studio.
