  abstract =     "Genetic programming provides an automated design
                 strategy to evolve complex controllers based on
                 evolution in nature. In this contribution we use
                 genetic programming to automatically evolve efficient
                 robot controllers for a corridor following task. Based
                 on tests executed in a simulation environment we show
                 that very robust and efficient controllers can be
                 obtained. Also, we stress that it is important to
                 provide sufficiently diverse fitness cases, offering a
                 sound basis for learning more complex behaviour. The
                 evolved controller is successfully applied to real
                 environments as well. Finally, controller and sensor
                 morphology are co-evolved, clearly resulting in an
                 improved sensor configuration.",
