Evolutionary robotics uses evolutionary search methods to fully or partially design robotic systems, including their control systems and sometimes their morphologies and sensor/ actuator properties. Such methods are used in a range of ways from the fine-tuning or optimization of established designs to the creation of completely novel designs. There are many applications of evolutionary robotics from wheeled to legged to swimming to flying robots. A particularly active area is the use of evolutionary robotics to synthesize embodied models of complete agent behaviors in order to help explore and generate hypotheses in neurobiology and cognitive science.
