Understanding Environmental Influence in an Open-Ended Evolutionary Algorithm

Conference Proceeding
Steyven, A., Hart, E., & Paechter, B. (2016)
Understanding Environmental Influence in an Open-Ended Evolutionary Algorithm. In Parallel Problem Solving from Nature – PPSN XIV; Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 921-931. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-45823-6_86
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...

The Cost of Communication: Environmental Pressure and Survivability in mEDEA

Conference Proceeding
Steyven, A., Hart, E., & Paechter, B. (2015)
The Cost of Communication: Environmental Pressure and Survivability in mEDEA. In Proceedings of the Companion Publication of the 2015 on Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference - GECCO Companion '15, 1239-1240. doi:10.1145/2739482.2768489
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 envi...

Ensuring the integrity of a robot swarm in terms of maintaining a stable population of functioning robots over long periods of time is a mandatory prerequisite for building mo...

An investigation of environmental influence on the benefits of adaptation mechanisms in evolutionary swarm robotics

Conference Proceeding
Steyven, A., Hart, E., & Paechter, B. (2017)
An investigation of environmental influence on the benefits of adaptation mechanisms in evolutionary swarm robotics. In GECCO '17 Proceedings of the Genetic and Evolutionary, (155-162). https://doi.org/10.1145/3071178.3071232
A robotic swarm that is required to operate for long periods in a potentially unknown environment can use both evolution and individual learning methods in order to adapt. How...
