In recent years, autonomic and organic computing have become areas of active research in the informatics community. Both initiatives aim at handling the growing complexity in technical systems by focusing on adaptation and self-optimisation capabilities. A promising application for organic concepts is the control of road traffic signals in urban areas. This(More)
— Due to steadily increasing mobility and the resulting rising traffic demands, serious congestion problems can be observed in many cities. One promising approach to alleviate the congestion effects is the coordination of the network's traffic signals in response to the traffic flow. The recently introduced Decentralised Progressive Signal Systems approach(More)
Organic Computing (OC) assumes that current trends and recent developments in computing, like growing interconnectedness and increasing computational power, pose new challenges to designers and users. In order to tackle the upcoming demands, OC has the vision to make systems more lifelike (organic) by endowing them with abilities such as self-organisation,(More)
The performance of a network protocol depends highly on the configuration of its parameter setting. Typical installations consider just a static setup that works well on average. The Organic Network Control (ONC) system provides a possibility to adapt the configurations of network protocols to environmental changes dynamically at run-time. Such rapidly(More)
