Software Components for Signal Fishing based on GA Element Position Optimizer

Nicolae Crisan, Ligia Chira Cremene, Marcel Cremene


Long-term adaptation solutions do not receive much attention in the design phase of a wireless system. A new approach is proposed, where the antenna takes an active role in characterising and learning the operation environment. The proposed solution is based on a signal fishing mechanism. Several software components, among which a genetic optimizer, implement the processing stages of autonomous design of the antenna array during operation.
