Frontiers in Evolutionary Robotics
by Hitoshi Iba
Publisher: InTech 2008
Number of pages: 596
This book presented techniques and experimental results which have been pursued for the purpose of evolutionary robotics. Evolutionary robotics is a new method for the automatic creation of autonomous robots. When executing tasks by autonomous robots, we can make the robot learn what to do so as to complete the task from interactions with its environment, but not manually pre-program for all situations.
