  abstract =     "We investigate the application of simulation-based
                 genetic programming to evolve controllers that perform
                 high-level tasks on a service robot. As a case study,
                 we synthesise a controller for a guide robot that
                 manages the visitor traffic flow in an exhibition space
                 in order to maximise the enjoyment of the visitors. We
                 used genetic programming in a low-fidelity simulation
                 to evolve a controller for this task, which was then
                 transferred to a service robot. An experimental
                 evaluation of the evolved controller in both simulation
                 and on the actual service robot shows that it performs
                 well compared to hand-coded heuristics, and performs
                 comparably to a human operator.",
