One of the most challenging research tasks in the field of wireless sensor networks is controlling the power consumption of batteries and prolonging network lifetime. For sensor networks which consist of a large number of sensor nodes, self-organized control is more suitable than centralized control. In particular, research on bio-inspired self-organization methods attracts attention due to the potential applicability of such methods to wireless sensor networks. In this paper, the authors focus on the calling behavior of Japanese tree frogs.
