Pogona – Simulation of Macroscopic Molecular Communication

Pogona – Simulation of Macroscopic Molecular Communication


The Pogona simulator has been developed as part of a research project funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) on macroscopic molecular communication. The underlying idea is to use a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulator to pre-compute a vector field. Pogona then reads this vector field and simulates the movement of particles by making the particles follow the flow speed vectors.
