Using genetic programming to evolve vision-based controller for PPRK robot

My M.Sc. student, Pawel Gajda, developed under my supervision an environment for evolving vision-based controllers for simple PPRK robot.

System components

Experiment results

Two frames from the training video sequence and their representation in terms of visual primitives:

A typical individual evolved using the approach:

See the movie showing the robot navigating towards the target (WMV format).
