Project description

The main research objective of this project is to develop an adaptive QoS network architecture for heterogenous wireless sensor networks, incorporating a genuine multi-agent systems reinforced learning (MAS-RL) algorithm for taking distributed, intelligent decisions on the optimal operation mode of each sensor node, hereby taking into account multiple interests and constraints.
