Autonomous Robot Exploration of Unknown Terrain : a Preliminary

  title={Autonomous Robot Exploration of Unknown Terrain : a Preliminary},
  author={Martin Peniak and D. Marocco and A. Cangelosi and Adaptive Behaviour and Drake Circus},
The paper presents an evolutionary robotics model of the Rover Mars robot. This work has the objective to investigate the possibility of using an alternative sensor system, based on infrared sensors, for future rovers capable of performing autonomous tasks in challenging planetary terrain environments. The simulation model of the robot and of Mars terrain is based on a physics engine. The robot control system consists of an artificial neural network trained using evolutionary computation… Expand
