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...

Incorporating emissions models within a multi-objective vehicle routing problem.

Conference Proceeding
Urquhart, N. B., Scott, C., & Hart, E. (2013)
Incorporating emissions models within a multi-objective vehicle routing problem. In C. Blum (Ed.), GECCO'13 Companion: Proceeding of the fifteenth annual conference companion on Genetic and evolutionary computation, (193-194). https://doi.org/10.1145/2464576.2464663
The vehicle routing problem with time windows (VRPTW) has previously been investigated as a multi-objective problem. In this paper estimated carbon emissions is added as an ob...

An improved immune inspired hyper-heuristic for combinatorial optimisation problems.

Conference Proceeding
Sim, K., & Hart, E. (2014)
An improved immune inspired hyper-heuristic for combinatorial optimisation problems. In C. Igel (Ed.), Proceedings of GECCO 2014 (Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference), (121-128). https://doi.org/10.1145/2576768.2598241
The meta-dynamics of an immune-inspired optimisation sys- tem NELLI are considered. NELLI has previously shown to exhibit good performance when applied to a large set of optim...

An immune network approach for self-adaptive ensembles of autonomic components: a case study in swarm robotics.

Conference Proceeding
Capodieci, N., Hart, E., & Cabri, G. (2013)
An immune network approach for self-adaptive ensembles of autonomic components: a case study in swarm robotics. In P. Liò, O. Miglino, G. Nicosia, S. Nolfi, & M. Pavone (Eds.), Advances in Artifical Life, Proceedings of ECAL 2013, 864-871. https://doi.org/10.7551/978-0-262-31709-2-ch127
We describe an immune inspired approach to achieve self-expression within an ensemble, i.e. enabling an ensemble of autonomic components to dynamically change their coordinati...
