Evolutionary Robotics is a new technique for the automatic creation of autonomous robots. It is inspired upon the Darwinian principle of selective reproduction of the fittest. It is a new approach that looks at robots as autonomous artificial organisms that develop their own skills in close interaction with the environment without human intervention. Heavily drawing from natural sciences like biology and ethology, evolutionary robotics makes use of tools like neural networks, genetic algorithms, dynamic systems, and bio-morphic engineering.
