Optimization Seminar Series – Mon Mar 7 at 1 pm – B756

Title: Cellular Automaton Based Algorithms in Wireless Communication
Speaker: Dr. Salimur Choudhury, Mathematics and Computer Science, Algoma University, Sault Ste. Marie, ON
Location and time: 1 pm, Room B756

Abstract: The cellular automaton is a bioinspired model used to model different physical systems including wireless communication. One of the main advantages of using cellular automaton based algorithms is that they need very little local information to compute a solution. In this talk, several optimization problems in wireless sensor networks and RFID (radio frequency identification) networks along with the corresponding cellular automaton based algorithms will be presented. The problems include sleep-awake scheduling of sensors, mobile sensors dispersion, and elimination of redundant readers in RFID system.
