ABSTRACT Since the usable frequency spectrum is limited, optimal assignment of channels is becoming more and more important. It can greatly enhance the traffic capacity of a cellular system and decrease interference between calls, thereby improving service quality and customer satisfaction. In this paper, we use genetic algorithms (GA) to solve the problem of assigning calls in a cellular mobile network to frequency channels in such a way that interference between calls is minimized, while demands for channels are satisfied. This channel assignment problem is known to be a difficult optimization problem. Simulation results showed that the GA approach is able to further improve on the results obtained by other techniques.

    ABSTRACT: Optimal channel assignment can enhance traffic capacity of a cellular mobile network and decrease interference between calls, thereby improving service quality and customer satisfaction. We combine genetic algorithms with stochastic ranking, to solve the problem of assigning calls in a cellular mobile network to frequency channels in such a way that interference between calls is minimized, while demands for channels are satisfied. Simulation results showed that this approach is able to further improve on the results obtained by some other techniques.

    ABSTRACT: The mobile manipulator is a multivariable and non-linear system, so the research about the kinematics decoupling of mobile manipulator is important, especially the control methods based on neural network. To solve the deficiency of neural network such as decision of structure and adjustment of parameters in hidden-unit, genetic algorithm based on RBF neural network is presented to deal with kinematics decoupling of mobile manipulator. The centers and widths of hidden layer and the weights of the output layer are coded into one chromosome. It strengthens the cooperation between the hidden layer and the output layer, and avoids the risk of getting stuck into a local minimum. RBF neural network using genetic algorithm is established for kinematics decoupling which brought by coordinated motion between the manipulator and mobile platform of mobile robot system. The experimental results show the method reasonable and effective.

    ABSTRACT: Recently, various sophisticated strategies adapted to current network conditions have been proposed for channel allocation based on intelligent techniques such as evolutionary and genetic algorithms. These approaches constitute heuristic solutions to resource management problems in modern cellular systems. On the other hand, the ant colony optimization approach has been proposed for solving several optimization problems with promising results. It would be interesting, therefore, to investigate its application in resource management problems of wireless systems. A comprehensive and efficient heuristic approach for solving the channel allocation problem in large scale wireless communication systems, based on intelligent techniques and especially on integrating multi-agent methodology and ant colony optimization strategies, is herein proposed. Moreover, important implementation issues of ant colony optimization within a multi-agent simulation system are investigated. In addition, multi-agent realization issues such as thread execution sequence definition are also presented. An initial but comprehensive simulation study has been conducted and the simulation results show the performance improvement of the proposed ant colony optimization algorithm as well as the multi-agent modelling approach with respect to traditional network performance statistics.
