Developing Box-Pushing Behaviours Using Evolutionary Robotics
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years))Student thesis
The context of this report and the IRIDIA laboratory are described in the preface. Evolutionary Robotics and the box-pushing task are presented in the introduction.
The building of a test system supporting Evolutionary Robotics experiments is then detailed. This system is made of a robot simulator and a Genetic Algorithm. It is used to explore the possibility of evolving box-pushing behaviours. The bootstrapping problem is explained, and a novel approach for dealing with it is proposed, with results presented.
Finally, ideas for extending this approach are presented in the conclusion.
