  abstract =     "This thesis is focused on the use and implementation
                 of Genetic Programming for generating viable motion
                 patterns for robotic creatures. SYMBRION and REPLICATOR
                 are two European projects whose research is focused on
                 application of biological knowledge in robotics. One of
                 the robots developed as a part of these projects is
                 used in this work as a building block for two larger
                 four legged robotic organisms. A co-evolution algorithm
                 has been developed to generate single leg movements and
                 adapt them to the three remaining legs. This approach
                 of dividing the problem into two smaller sub-problems
                 simplifies the evolution and saves the processing time.
                 It is shown that the implemented Evolution Algorithm is
                 indeed capable of generating motion patterns for robots
                 very similar to those seen in nature and that by using
                 them the robots are able to efficiently reach their
                 predefined targets. All the experiments are conducted
                 in a simulated environment.",
