The distributed co-evolution of an embodied simulator and controller for swarm robot behaviours (2011)
Presentation / Conference
O'Dowd, P., Winfield, A. F., & Studley, M. (2011, September). The distributed co-evolution of an embodied simulator and controller for swarm robot behaviours. Paper presented at IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2011), San Francisco, USA

Embodied fitness assessment of robotic controllers is slow but grounded, while assessment in a simulated environment is fast but can run foul of the ‘reality gap’. We present a distributed co-evolutionary method to adapt the environmental model of an...

In this paper we describe the implementation of a Linux extension board for the e-puck educational mobile robot, designed to enhance the computation, memory and networking performance of the robot at very low cost. The extension board is based on a 3... Read More about Open-hardware e-puck Linux extension board for experimental swarm robotics research.
