This article is on the subject of evolving neural network con trollers for cooperative, mobile robots. We evolve control lers for combined hole-avoidance and phototaxis in a group of physically connected, autonomous robots called s-bots, each with limited sensing capabilities. We take a systematic approach to finding a suitable fitness function, an appropriate neural network structure, and we explore and compare three evolutionary algorithms commonly used in evolutionary robotics: genetic… CONTINUE READING
