Interim: Problem Definition:
Malaria is a growing problem in our society. Malaria is an infectious disease spread by mosquitoes. The goal of our project is to find a way to get rid of malaria.
We plan to get rid of malaria by testing the effects of mosquito repellent. We have started modeling this on starlogo TNG. In the model whenever a mosquito collides with a human, the human turns red. When they are red, they are infected. After a certain amount of time, the human either dies or recovers. When they die, they disappear from the model.
Progress so far:
In our model, we have it so that the disease spreads, people die, and people recover. We do not, however, have the mosquitoes in yet. The red people are infected. The green people are susceptible, and the blue people are immune.
We expect the repellent to keep the mosquitoes away from the humans so that they cannot infect the humans.
