In this paper, we first investigate the fundamentals of the immune system and the principles of the antibodies and how antibodies work cooperatively to achieve swarm coordination and hence a successful immune response. Based on the study, we propose a multi-agent cooperative operation strategy for the immune system based on the immune network theory. In order to achieve successful swarm coordination, we design each agent to select its favorable strategy according to distributed sensing through… CONTINUE READING
