— The radio network design (RND) is an NP-hard optimization problem which consists of the maximization of the coverage of a given area while minimizing the base station deployment. Solving RND problems efficiently is relevant to many fields of application and has a direct impact in the engineering, telecommunication, scientific, and industrial areas.(More)
In this paper we present a Differential Evolution based algorithm used to solve the Radio Network Design (RND) problem. This problem consists in determining the optimal locations for base station transmitters in order to get a maximum coverage area with a minimum number of transmitters. Because of the very high amount of possible solutions, this problem is(More)
RND (Radio Network Design) is an important problem in mobile telecommunications (for example in mobile/cellular telephony), being also relevant in the rising area of sensor networks. This problem consists in covering a certain geographical area by using the smallest number of radio antennas achieving the biggest cover rate. To date, several radio antenna(More)
In this paper we present the design and prototyping of an arithmetic processor based on reconfigurable technology, whose purpose is to determine in a parallel manner the quality of the solution in a radio network design optimization problem. This problem consists in the search for an optimal set of locations in which to place radio antennas in order to(More)
