Many self-organizing and self-adaptive systems use the biologically inspired " gradient " primitive, in which each device in a network estimates its distance to the closest device designated as a source of the gradient. Distance through the network is often used as a proxy for geometric distance, but the accuracy of this approximation has not previously(More)
Gel is a hardware description language that enables quick scripting of high level designs and can be easily extended to new design patterns. It is expression oriented and extremely succinct. Modules are described as functions and composed through function calls. Types and bit widths are inferred automatically to guarantee correctness. Together these(More)
This thesis investigates the feasibility of a smart building evacuation system, capable of guiding occupants along safe paths to exits and responding to changing threats. Inspired by developments in amorphous computing, the design presented is scalable to large networks, robust to hardware and communication failure, and based on simple low-cost components.(More)
