  abstract =     "The process of developing genetic algorithms, genetic
                 programs or training neural networks is a time
                 consuming task. When the target device is an autonomous
                 mobile robot, this development is often performed using
                 software simulation. Software simulations are a cost
                 effective tool and provide researchers with the ability
                 to test out multiple algorithms quickly and
                 efficiently. However, the end result is that the
                 optimised algorithm(s) must be implemented and tested
                 on an actual robot to evaluate performance in the real
                 world. Significant cost can be associated with this
                 final step. In this paper we propose to leverage Radio
                 Frequency Identification (RFID) and a low-cost RFID
                 capable mobile robot with the intent of creating basic
                 foraging behaviour. Additionally, we will present
                 experimental results that demonstrate the effectiveness
                 of using Genetic Programming (GP) and a low-cost RFID
                 capable robot to create foraging behaviour by
                 presenting our experimental results.",
