Abstract

The use of nanorobots in medical applications, specifically cancer treatment, is a serious alternative to prevent this disease. Locating chemical sources and tracking them over time, are tasks where nanorobotics is an ideal candidate to accomplish them. We present a multiagent simulation of three bio-inspired strategies to find targets in fluid environments; including diverse conditions for example: noisy sensors, interference between agents and obstacles generated by the environment itself. Besides, we present a comparative analysis among the three strategies. The results show that nanorobotics used in cancer therapy needs to explore an extensive range of blind searching techniques without communication.
