Abstract

The turn to nature has brought us many unforeseen great concepts and solutions. This course seems to hold on for many research domains. In this article, we study the applicability of biological mechanisms and techniques in the domain of communications. In particular, we study the behavior and the challenges in networked embedded systems that are meant to self-organize in large groups of nodes. Application examples include wireless sensor networks and sensor/actuator networks. Based on a review of the needs and requirements in such networks, we study selected bio-inspired networking approaches that claim to outperform other methods in specific domains. We study mechanisms in swarm intelligence, the artificial immune system, and approaches based on investigations on the cellular signaling pathways. As a major conclusion, we derive that bio-inspired networking techniques do have advantages compared to engineering methods. Nevertheless, selection and employment must be done carefully to achieve the desired performance gains.
