Sensor evolution research typically uses evolutionary algorithms (EAs) to generate sensors that near-optimally 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 jaw bones of amphibians and reptiles, that in turn had previously acted as gill arches in fish. This paper describes an evolvable hardware experiment that resulted in a network of… Expand
Guest Editors' Introduction: Special Issue on Sensor Evolution
TLDR
The goal of synthesizing artificial sensors for hardware or software systems suggests a similar approach to that taken for generating life-like behavior, namely, using evolutionary techniques to explore design spaces and generate sensors that are specifically adapted with respect to environmental and other fitness-related constraints.

Incremental evolution of fast moving and sensing simulated snake-like robot with multiobjective GP and strongly-typed crossover
TLDR
Experimental results show that the mechanism set forth contribute to significant increase in the efficiency of the evolution of fast moving and sensing Snakebots as well as the robustness of the final designs. Expand
Innately adaptive robotics through embodied evolution
TLDR
This work investigates autonomous robot adaptation, focussing on damage recovery and adaptation to unknown environments, and introduces an embodied evolutionary algorithm, shown to be able to control the motion of a robot snake effectively and inherently recovers the snake’s motion after damage.
