Evolutionary robotics (ER) involves the application of evolutionary techniques to the generation of either the “brain” (control systems) or to the “body” (morphology) of autonomous robots, or perhaps both. From a locomotive perspective, much research in the early days of research in the ER field (early and mid-1990s) involved the use of wheeled robots, in particular the ubiquitous Khephera robot.
