Frog Calls Inspire a New Algorithm for Wireless Networks | Biomimicry |

Male Japanese tree frogs use a method of calling that allows them to use their calls at the same time but in a way that allows the females to distinguish between them. Now, researchers from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia have mimicked this form of calling behavior in the creation of an algorithm that assigns colours to network nodes, the use of which can be applied to developing more efficient wireless networks.
