Distributed Intelligence Systems for Massive Network Management


The Intelligent/Distributed Enterprise Automation (iDEA) Laboratory in the School of Engineering Science is developing technology to manage dynamically forming and potential massive urban wireless networks, and those systems that will use them. Central to the research and development being accomplished is the development of wireless Holonic Technology, unifying together fields from communication, computer science, and mathematics, including: wireless communication based upon IEEE 802.11 standards, distributed software architectures based upon advanced multi-agent system methodologies, and distributed intelligence systems based on a hybrid of game theory algorithms used for distributed bi-lateral contracts and fuzzy Bayesian distributed nets.
