Abstract. In this paper we propose an empirical method for the comparison of architectures designed to produce similar behaviour from an intelligent system. The approach is based on the exploration of design space using similar designs that all satisfy the same requirements in niche space. An example of a possible application of this method is given using a robotic system that has been implemented using a software toolkit that has been designed to support architectural experimentation.
