  abstract =     "Guiding visitors through an exhibit space such as a
                 museum is an important, early application for mobile
                 robots, and commercial robots designed for this purpose
                 have become available. We consider the problem of using
                 a single mobile robot to simultaneously direct multiple
                 groups of visitors through a museum or exhibition, and
                 formulate an objective function for this task. We show
                 that an evolutionary robotics approach using a simple,
                 low-fidelity simulator and genetic programming can
                 automatically generate robot controllers which can
                 perform this task better than hand-coded controllers as
                 well as humans in both simulation and on a real
