It is well known that in open-ended evolution, the nature
of the environment plays in key role in directing evolution. However, in Evolutionary Robotics, it is often unclear e...

We augment the mEDEA algorithm to explicitly account for
the costs of communication between robots. Experimental
results show that adding a costs for communication exerts
