There is dramatic need to achieve optimal performance in wireless multimedia network due to its heterogeneous nature, media content and different quality of service (QoS) requirements from different applications. It is very obvious that supporting multimedia applications and services over wireless is very challenging task, and it requires low complexity and highly efficient scheme to cope with the unpredictable channel condition. In this paper, we develop a biologically-inspired strategy for optimal video streaming application. The optimal parameters configuration selected provide the best QoS settings to enhance the video streaming quality over wireless LAN. The scenario has been simulated in NS-2 environment, it clearly shows that the video quality has been improve by selecting minimum configuration to ultimately support video application. The PSO-based approach outperforms other techniques used to compare the performance of the develop scheme in terms of perceived video quality by more than 0.5dB. The experimental simulation has been used to verify the efficiency and potential application of the PSO in wireless multimedia communication.

    • "Consequently, this has been the most classical and most preferred choice for curve parameterization. Some recent papers have shown that the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques can achieve remarkable results regarding many parameterization problems [2] [35] [42]. Consequently, a number of different methods, including metaheuristics such as Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) [1] [3] [16] [34] [41], Genetic Algorithms (GA) [19] [21] [23] [30], Harmony Search (HS) [39] [47], Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) [43], Simulated Annealing (SA) [5], Bee Colony Optimization (BCO) [29], Clonal Selection Algorithm (CSA) [20], and many others.

    ABSTRACT: A very important issue in many applied fields is to construct the fitting curve that approximates a given set of data points optimally in the sense of least-squares. This problem arises in a number of areas, such as computer-aided design & manufacturing (CAD/CAM), virtual reality, medical imaging, computer graphics, computer animation, and many others. This is also a hard problem, because it is highly nonlinear, over-determined and typically involves a large number of unknown variables. A critical step in this process is to obtain a suitable parameterization of the data points. In this context, this paper introduces a new method to obtain an optimal solution for the parameterization problem of the least-squares fitting Bézier curve. Our method is based on a local search metaheuristic approach for optimization problems called tabu search. The method is applied to some simple yet illustrative examples for the cases of 2D and 3D curves. The proposed method is simple to understand, easy to implement and can be applied to any kind of smooth data points. Our experimental results show that the presented method performs very well, being able to fit the data points with a high degree of accuracy.
