In this paper, we propose a computational multiagent model of a bacterial light-producing communication system, termed quorum sensing (QS). Specifically, we propose a bottom-up agent-based approach combined with Ordinary Differential Equations, which abstract the intracellular dynamics, such as a proposed bioluminescence model. Results show that bacteria cells have a metabolism allowing them to grow, reproduce, interact, and cooperate at the population level to exhibit nearoptimal light producing behaviors. The ultimate goal is to develop a self-regulated network in which the rules governing the formation of the network are linked to the internal dynamics of its units without any centralized control. Such a bacterial-inspired networks, can address issues such as mobility, and energy that are key factors for the development of new self-organized network such as mobile Ad-hoc networks.
