: : Evolutionary Robotics - An Overview
The field of Evolutionary Robotics (ER) emerged as an important recent addition to intelligent robotic research
in the early 1990s. It currently deals primarily with the evolution of control software for mobile robots with the
goal of developing competent robots that can perform tasks well adapted to the requirements in a given
operational environment. ER is also being extended to hardware evolution. This paper is partly based on results
of a survey conducted on key Evolutionary Robotic research activities worldwide. Included in the survey are
research activities in such institutions as Sussex University, Stanford University, Case Western Reserve
University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), École Polytechnique Fédérale
De Lausanne (EPFL) and University of Trieste.
