Beedroids: How Luminous Autonomous Swarms of UAVs Can Save the World?

Authors: Quentin Bramas, Stéphane Devismes, Anaïs Durand, Pascal Lafourcade, and Anissa Lamani

Abstract
Bee extinction is a great risk for humanity. To circumvent this ineluctable disaster, we propose to develop beedroids, i.e., small UAVs mimicking the behaviors of real bees. Those beedroids are endowed with very weak capabilities (short-range visibility sensors, no GPS, light with a few colors, ...). Like real bees, they have to self-organize together into swarms. Beedroid swarms will be deployed in cuboid-shaped greenhouse. Each beedroid swarm will have to indefinitely search for flowers to pollinate in its greenhouse. We model this problem as a perpetual exploration of a 3D grid by a swarm of beedroids. In this paper, we propose two optimal solutions to solve this problem and so to save humanity.

Finding Water on Poleless Using Melomaniac Myopic Chameleon Robots

Authors: Quentin Bramas, Pascal Lafourcade, and Stéphane Devismes

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 157, 10th International Conference on Fun with Algorithms (FUN 2021) (2020)


Abstract
In 2042, the exoplanet exploration program, launched in 2014 by NASA, finally discovers a new exoplanet so-called Poleless, due to the fact that it is not subject to any magnetism. A new generation of autonomous mobile robots, called M2C (for Melomaniac Myopic Chameleon), have been designed to find water on Poleless. To address this problem, we investigate optimal (w.r.t., visibility range and number of used colors) solutions to the infinite grid exploration problem (IGE) by a small team of M2C robots. Our first result shows that minimizing the visibility range and the number of used colors are two orthogonal issues: it is impossible to design a solution to the IGE problem that is optimal w.r.t. both parameters simultaneously. Consequently, we address optimality of these two criteria separately by proposing two algorithms; the former being optimal in terms of visibility range, the latter being optimal in terms of number of used colors. It is worth noticing that these two algorithms use a very small number of robots, respectively six and eight.

The Stability and the Security of the Tangle

Authors: Quentin Bramas

Published in: OASIcs, Volume 71, International Conference on Blockchain Economics, Security and Protocols (Tokenomics 2019)


Abstract
In this paper we study the stability and the security of the distributed data structure at the base of the IOTA protocol, called the Tangle. The contribution of this paper is twofold. First, we present a simple model to analyze the Tangle and give the first discrete time formal analyzes of the average number of unconfirmed transactions and the average confirmation time of a transaction. Then, we define the notion of assiduous honest majority that captures the fact that the honest nodes have more hashing power than the adversarial nodes and that all this hashing power is constantly used to create transactions. This notion is important because we prove that it is a necessary assumption to protect the Tangle against double-spending attacks, and this is true for any tip selection algorithm (which is a fundamental building block of the protocol) that verifies some reasonable assumptions. In particular, the same is true with the Markov Chain Monte Carlo selection tip algorithm currently used in the IOTA protocol. Our work shows that either all the honest nodes must constantly use all their hashing power to validate the main chain (similarly to the Bitcoin protocol) or some kind of authority must be provided to avoid this kind of attack (like in the current version of the IOTA where a coordinator is used). The work presented here constitute a theoretical analysis and cannot be used to attack the current IOTA implementation. The goal of this paper is to present a formalization of the protocol and, as a starting point, to prove that some assumptions are necessary in order to defend the system again double-spending attacks. We hope that it will be used to improve the current protocol with a more formal approach.
