A Burning Ring of Fire-Fighting Robots

Roland Piquepaille writes, "Computer scientists at the Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) have developed a new kind of software to monitor wireless sensor networks. For example, their software agents can help robots to navigate through simulated fires. Their real innovation is that their software agents are able to clone themselves, creating a ring of software around the fire. This very flexible approach to monitoring wireless sensor networks could be used in a wide variety of applications, like safeguarding containers in a warehouse -- or on boats." For more details on this approach to fire-fighting robots, see Roland's blog.
