The research team from the EvoRobots lab@Napier (evorobots.napier.ac.uk) have been nominated for a best paper award in the Complex Systems Track at GECCO 2018, held in Kyoto in July 2018.

The new work develops a novel method for evolving a team of robots that exhibit diverse behaviours w.r.t performing a particular task, inspired by diversity observed in natural systems such as swarms of bees.

This is shown to lead to swarms that are more robust and adaptable to their environment
