Many biological systems are composed of unreliable components which self-organize efficiently into systems that can tackle complex problems. One such example is the true slime mold Physarum polycephalum which is an amoeba-like organism that seeks food sources and efficiently distributes nutrients throughout its cell body. The distribution of nutrients is(More)
The phenomenon of self-organization is pervasive in nature , where biological organisms efficiently self-organize unreliable and dynamically changing components to develop a wide diversity of functions. In addition, these biological organisms enjoy the desirable properties of robust-ness to the failure of individual components, adaptivity to changing(More)
Many biological systems are composed of unreliable components which self-organize effectively into systems that achieve a balance between efficiency and robustness. One such example is the true slime mold Physarum polycephalum which is an amoeba-like organism that seeks and connects food sources and efficiently distributes nutrients throughout its cell(More)
Given an arbitrary deployment of sensor nodes, one fundamental design issue in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is to connect the source nodes collecting sensing data to the sinks so that sensing data flows efficiently and reliably to the sinks. To facilitate such data collection, we require a path formation protocol that will determine multi-hop routes(More)
