Mobile Agent Communication in Highly Dynamic Networks: A Self-Adaptive Architecture inspired by the Honey Bee Colony

Abstract

Communication is considered as a building block for mobile agent systems. In highly dynamic networks, thanks to environmental stimuli such as changes in connection quality and network topology, performance of communication between mobile agents may be degraded considerably.With focus on attaining fault tolerance and reliability, we propose a context-aware architecture for agent communication model inspired by the honey bee colony. To validate the hypothesis, a software prototype has been designed and implemented according to the proposed mechanism. Encouraging experimental results on a test system show that our approach brings benefits to a colony of agent platforms.
