Multi-hop communication: Frog choruses inspire wireless sensor networks

Researchers looked to nature for inspiration in designing more effective wireless sensor networks. First, they recorded the vocal interplay of neighboring tree frog calls, which they found allowed trade-off time for individual communication, though this is interspersed with more random collective silence and choruses. They mathematically modeled these patterns and effectively applied their model toward the control of a wireless sensor network.
