Recent research shows that animals can be guided remotely by stimulating regions of the brain. Therefore, it is possible to set up an animal mobile sensor network for search and rescue operations. Applications of such an animal sensor network have great importance to society, including natural disaster recovery, homeland security and military operations. In this paper, The system architecture and operation is introduced, and major challenges and issues are discussed. Because of its unique challenge, a simple and efficient routing scheme is devised for this special ad hoc network. Each annual needs to carry a backpack to perform sensing and network communications. The implementation of a backpack prototype is presented, and a simple network is set up to capture and transfer video sensor data.
