The particle swarm optimisation (PSO) algorithm suffers from the possibility of premature convergence. This problem has historically been addressed ab intra - manipulating velocity and swarm topology - yet the judicious addition of external mechanisms has been shown to adjust search behaviour to yield significantly improved results across many problems.(More)
Mobile device usage has reached a level of pervasiveness previously unheard of. The "pocketability" of such devices enables pedestrians to use them whilst moving, causing attention to be divided between the device and locomotion. We attempt to expose the implications of divided attention via a pedestrian simulation that accounts for mobile device use. Of(More)
