The natural world may be the inspiration we need for solving our computer problems. While it is certainly true that "the map is not the territory," most visitors to a foreign country do prefer to take with them at least a guidebook to help locate themselves as they begin their explorations. That is the intent of this article. Although there will not be… (More)
Research in wireless sensor network technology has exploded in the last decade. Promises of complex and ubiquitous control of the physical environment by these networks open avenues for new kinds of science and business. Due to the small size and low cost of sensor devices, visionaries promise systems enabled by deployment of massive numbers of sensors… (More)
– Situation management is a rapidly evolving science where managed sources are processed as real-time streams of events and fused in a way that maximizes comprehension, thus enabling better decisions for action. Sensor networks provide a new technology that promises ubiquitous input and action throughout an environment, which can substantially improve… (More)
Research Interests Areas of research include wireless sensor networks, enhanced meshes, software reliability, software implemented fault tolerance (SIFT), and Mikusinski Operator Functions.
The defining characteristic of a multicellular organism is unity of purpose. In biology, the purpose is survival of the organism. The purpose of our multi-agent system is to provide a persistent computing environment in harsh conditions where repairs are difficult, or impossible. The multi-agent organism is a single entity built from logically dependent… (More)
