Automatic Multi-Sensor Task Allocation using Modified Distributed Bees Algorithm Conference Paper uri icon


  • In this paper, we propose a Modified Distributed Bees Algorithm (MDBA) for multi-sensor task allocation in a supply chain security scenario. The MDBA assigns sensors to the upcoming tasks using a decentralized, probabilistic approach to maximize information gain while minimizing costs. Tasks are allocated based on sensors' performance, tasks' priorities and the mutual sensor-task distances. Simulation analysis compared different algorithms and indicated improved performance of 15% by using MDBA with respect to the second-best algorithm.
