  abstract =     "We demonstrate the first instance of a real on-line
                 robot learning to develop feasible flying (flapping)
                 behavior, using evolution. Here we present the
                 experiments and results of the first use of
                 evolutionary methods for a flying robot. With nature's
                 own method, evolution, we address the highly non-linear
                 fluid dynamics of flying. The flying robot is
                 constrained in a test bench where timing and movement
                 of wing flapping is evolved to give maximal lifting
                 force. The robot is assembled with standard
                 off-the-shelf R/C servomotors as actuators. The
                 implementation is a conventional steady-state linear
                 evolutionary algorithm.",
