What Is the Pogona Simulator?

The Pogona simulator has been developed as part of a research project funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) on macroscopic molecular communication 1. The underlying idea is to use a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulator to pre-compute a vector field. Pogona then reads this vector field and simulates the movement of particles by making the particles follow the flow speed vectors.

If you use Pogona in your own work, we would appreciate a citation:
