Transportation Network with Fluctuating Input/Output Designed by the Bio-Inspired Physarum Algorithm

Abstract

In this paper, we propose designing transportation network topology and traffic distribution under fluctuating conditions using a bio-inspired algorithm. The algorithm is inspired by the adaptive behavior observed in an amoeba-like organism, plasmodial slime mold, more formally known as plasmodium of Physarum plycephalum. This organism forms a… (More)
