Paper: Comparing direct and indirect representations for environment-specific robot component design
We compare two representations used to define the morphology of legs for a hexapod robot, which are subsequently 3D printed. […]
Paper: New biological morphogenetic methods for evolutionary design of robot bodies
We present some currently unused morphogenetic mechanisms from evolutionary biology and guidelines for transfer to evolutionary robotics. DNA patterns providing […]
