This paper describes research challenges in Molecular Communication, a new and interdisciplinary research area that spans the nanotechnology, biotechnology, and communication technology. Molecular communication allows nanomachines to communicate using molecules as a communication carrier. Key research challenges include controlled propagation of carrier(More)
Systems of bionanomachines may benefit future applications which require interaction with biological systems at the nano- to microscale. Molecular communication is a suitable communication mechanism for autonomous bionanomachines which are limited in size and capability and for interfacing with biological systems. In molecular communication, a(More)
This paper proposes to explore the possibility of molecular communication as a solution for communication between nanomachines. Nanomachines are artificial or biological nano-scale devices that perform simple computation, sensing, or actuation. Molecular communication provides a mechanism for nanomachines to communicate over a short distance (adjacent(More)
For Workshop on Biological and Bio-Inspired Information Theory. Future applications may require communication mechanisms for nanomachines to coordinate with other nano-machines. Nanomachines are artificial or biological macromolecules that perform simple computing, sensing, or actuation. A molecular communication system is one method for communication among(More)
— Molecular communication is engineered biological communication (e.g., cell-to-cell signaling) that allows nanomachines (e.g., engineered organisms, artificial devices) to communicate through chemical signals in an aqueous environment. This paper describes the design of a molecular communication system based on intercellular calcium signaling networks.(More)
This paper describes the possibility of molecular communication as a solution for communication between nanomachines. Nanomachines are artificial or biological nano-scale devices that perform simple computation, sensing, or actuation. Existing communication technologies cannot be applied to nano-scale communication between nanomachines due to difficulty of(More)
Molecular communication is one solution for nano-scale communication between nanomachines. Nanomachines (e.g., biological molecules, artificial devices) represent small devices or components that perform computation, sensing, or actuation. Molecular communication provides a mechanism for one nanomachine to encode or decode information into molecules and to(More)
We have proposed Molecular Communication [1][2], a solution for nano-scale communication between nanomachines (e.g., biological molecules, artificial devices). Molecular communication provides a mechanism for one nanomachine to encode or decode information into molecules (information molecules) and to send the information molecules to another nanomachine.(More)
