Ant colony algorithm has three steps: pheromone initialization, building tour, updating pheromone.For the ant colony algorithm, path selection influence a little by the pheromone initialization. In order to get a better result, the pheromone value is always initialized slightly higher than the one released in each iteration.We have taken the initial value of pheromone as τij(0)= m/Cmin where , τij(t) is the residual pheromone on the path between node i and node j at moment t. m is the number of ants.Cmin is the minimum of product of distance and traffic density between the two junctions. In the process of planning path,the kth(k=1,2,...,m) ant chooses next junction based on probability S = [τij(t)]. [ij]…

Hi, Aaron here from the Leiningen plantation in southern Brazil. We are witnessing, first hand, the world’s largest army attempt to take on 400+ men armed with farm supplies and tools, ANTS!

Hypothesis 1.) Ants prefer food sources of a higher quality rather than of a lower quality. 2.) Ants are sensitive to foraging gains and predation risks. Predictions 1.) Ants will prefer to forage for sugar water that is highly concentrated rather than water that is less concentrated. 2.) Ants will prefer to forage close to their home net site rather than farther away from their home nest site. 3.) Ants will balance the trade-off between the risk of predation and food quality. Ants will take…

In Dr Deborah Gordon tech talk, “How Ant Colonies Get Things Done” she presents her findings from studying a collection of ant colonies in New Mexico for the past 25 years. More specifically, she focus on the Red Carpenter ant species. While colonies of ants may look at first glance like simply a bunch of ants running around aimlessly, a closer and more careful look shows substantial social organization. A colony can solve problems unthinkable for individual ants, such as finding the shortest…

ANT COLONY OTIMIZATION basics and algorithm 3.1. ACO algorithm introduction and basics The concept of ACO has been inspired by observation of real ants while wondering for food source. An ant while in search of food source lays a certain amount of pheromone trail along the path traversed. The laying of pheromone serves dual purpose to the ant. Firstly, it marks the path for other randomly moving aunts and secondly, it helps the aunt to return to its original source. Now, whenever a redundantly…

Most ant species are social insects, living in large cooperative groups called colonies. Two or more generations may overlap in a colony. These ant colonies are divided into three castes — males, workers and queens — and each caste perform certain tasks. Queen ants and males are part of the reproductive castes. They are the most important members of a colony because they ensure the survival of their species. Queen ants, regardless of species, often are larger than other members of their…
