By Hartmut Schmeck
Issue Date:May 2005
pp. 201-203
Organic Computing is becoming the new vision for the design of complex systems, satisfying human needs for trustworthy systems that behave life-like by adapting autonomously to dynamic changes of the environment, and have self-x properties as postulated fo...
 
Evolutionary algorithm for optimal anchor node placement to localize devices in a mobile ad hoc network during building evacuation
Found in: Proceeding of the fifteenth annual conference companion on Genetic and evolutionary computation conference companion (GECCO '13 Companion)
By Hartmut Schmeck, Patrick Unger, Sabrina Merkel
Issue Date:July 2013
pp. 1407-1414
Using mobile devices to support the evacuation of a building is a relatively new and promising research field. An essential requirement to realize this endeavor is to be able to track the location of the mobile devices. Since GPS is generally not available...
