Abstract

Parallel genetic algorithms for searching a color pattern and the synchronous flashing of digital fireflies were implemented in a physical computing environment composed of portable Java machines with radio communications and sensors. In both cases, at first stage, Java machines were located remotely each other. When they were brought close, they could communicate each other and act as a distributed application. In the former case, migration of some elite individuals among sub-populations had begun to happen. In addition, a flashlight to the luminous sensor adjusts the probability of happening mutation. In the latter case, fireflies in the neighborhood begin to synchronize in flashing autonomously. These operations are understandable to human and they will become very powerful way to combine real world with the computer software. They can be used as good materials for relatively high-level programming exercises.
