Swarm Intelligence with mobile devices

Contact: Sanaz Mostaghim

Project Status: completed


This project aims to find algorithmic concepts transferring swarm behavior on a multitude of mobile devices. The objective is to reach a predefined global behavioral pattern within a certain time range by synchronizing all modules. Conventional algorithms are based on methods of central communication and synchronization. Here, the devices should coordinate their behavior decentralized and self-organized by local communication. Thereby the communication's locality and the modules' mobility are the main challenge for developing new algorithms. There are many application scenarios for example algorithms for dynamic classification problems.
