MIT Algorithm Tackles Network Data Congestion

A research project at MIT has developed an algorithm in which a constantly updating network — of sensors, drones or data-sharing vehicles — minimizes how much new information is received at any moment to avoid data congestion, while still keeping the most important data “as fresh as possible.” Right now, the approach works for “simple” networks; but eventually, the team expects to tackle complex ones as well. The project is important in an era of smart cars, manufacturing and delivery. Sensors are designed to feed fresh data to a wireless network quickly and continuously, to allow the network to maintain a current status on all variables in the system, as an MIT article explained.
