The evolved radio and its implications for modelling the evolution of novel sensors

  title={The evolved radio and its implications for modelling the evolution of novel sensors},
  author={Jon Bird and Paul Layzell},
Sensor evolution research typically uses evolutionary algor ithms (EAs) to generate sensors that nearoptimally satisfy large numbers of constraints. This is qualitatively different from the phylogenetic process found in nature that has resulted, for example, in the mammalian auditory ossicles evolving from the j aw bones of amphibians and reptiles, that in turn had previously acted as gill arches in f ish. This paper describes an evolvable hardware exper iment that resulted in a network of t… CONTINUE READING
