Abstract:We define a Markovian Agent Model (MAM) as an analytical model formed by a spatial collection of interacting Markovian Agents (MAs), whose properties and behavior can be evaluated by numerical techniques. MAMs have been introduced with the aim of providing a flexible and scalable framework for distributed systems of interacting objects, where both the local properties and the interactions may depend on the geographical position. MAMs can be proposed to model biological inspired systems since are suited to cope with the four common principles that govern swarm intelligence: positive feedback, negative feedback, randomness, multiple interactions. In the present work, we report some results of a MAM model for WSN routing protocol based on swarm intelligence, and some preliminary results in utilizing MAs for very basic ACO benchmarks.
