Topics of Interest
Applying swarm intelligence to sensor and actuator networks, especially using threshold-based algorithms and other swarm-intelligent methods for distributed control. Of primary interest is the measuring/monitoring of spatially and temporally localized phenomena.
Past and ongoing areas of investigation include:
- Multi-level modeling of wireless sensor & actuator networks.
- Distributed monitoring of spatio-temporally unpredictable ephemeral events (i.e., acoustics).
- Mobility in sensor & actuator networks; robotic sensor networks.
- Resource allocation and power management in wireless sensor networks.
- Threshold-based & market-based algorithms.
- Automatic/adaptive deployment & re-configuration of robotic sensor networks.
- Environmental monitoring and modeling using wireless sensor networks.
