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 Computation Conference. , (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...
