bongard-moprhing-robotsIn his experiment, University of Vermont roboticist Josh Bongard created both simulated and actual robots that, just like tadpoles become frogs, change their body forms while learning how to walk. Over iterations in versions (generations), his simulated robots managed to evolve – spending less time in “infant” tadpole-like forms and more time in “adult” four-legged… »

fraunhofer-ipa-genetic-robotsResearchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA) in Stuttgart have successfully performed a process of genetic robotics where a moving robot was automatically designed without the intervention of a designing engineer. Genetic Robots are moving robots that can be created by using genetic software algorithms and additive manufacturing. The important role… »
