Power grid restoration with a slime mold algorithm

After an extensive period of comprehensive research, encompassing literature review, hypothesis formulation, modeling, implementation, and several weeks of simulation, we showcased our paper titled “A Graph-Based Approach for Applying Biologically-Inspired Slime Mold Algorithms for Repairing a Power Transmission Network after an Electromagnetic Pulse Attack” at the 2nd International Conference on […]

UWB connectivity in industrial environments

The introduction of wireless connectivity in industrial environments promises a rapid and cost-effective reconfiguration of machines and sensors. A key question in this context is: Which wireless technology is best suited for industrial settings? Many of the prevalent technologies, like WiFi and ZigBee, do not meet the requirements of certain […]
