Falko Dressler, "Efficient Simulation of Particle Flow-based Macroscopic Molecular Communication," Invited Talk, ECRO Satellite Symposium on Molecular Communication, Virtual Conference, September 16, 2020.


Macroscopic molecular communication is becoming more popular now given its wide variety of application domains ranging from medical applications to industrial setups. We focus on molecular communication in liquid environments such as complex pipe systems. Even though first experimental testbeds have already been established, simulation is a key to exploring complex and possibly large-scale configurations. However, simulating such networks accurately is difficult because of the complexity of fluid dynamics, which existing molecular communication simulators do not model. We introduce a novel simulator that combines computational fluid dynamics simulation and particle movement predictions. It is optimized to be computationally efficient while offering a high degree of adaptability to complex fluid flows in larger pipe networks. The simulator has already been cross-validated with experimental results from a real-world testbed.
