Hi all,

I was wondering if any people in the list had information on the UNICEF

Innovation project. I’m mainly interested in its rugged computing aspects.

I’m putting together some research on deploying Sahana in a low connectivity

environments and this looks very encouraging.

There is a lot of scope for a rugged pre-configured unit of Sahana for

a low connectivity (no power) environments that you find in most large

scale disasters. This is one reason that we worked on configuring

Sahana for the OLPC


Work done so far:

Couple this with the p2p information exchange work being done for

Sahana in GSoC right now and the fact that the OLPC is targeted at

Children (ie alignment to UNICEF) and I believe you can build a very

compelling proposal.
