  abstract =     "We propose an approach of applying genetic programming
                 (GP) for automated development of electronic stability
                 program (ESP) of a car, realistically simulated in The
                 Open Source Racing Car Simulator (TORCS). ESP
                 facilitates the yaw rotation of an unstable (e.g.,
                 understeering or oversteering) car in slippery road
                 conditions by applying asymmetric braking forces to its
                 wheels. In the proposed approach, the amount of
                 ESP-induced braking force is evolved - via GP - as an
                 algebraic function of the parameters, pertinent to the
                 state of the car, and their derivatives. The
                 experimental results suggest that, compared to the car
                 without ESP, the best evolved ESP offers a superior
                 controllability - in terms of both (i) a smaller
                 deviation from the ideal trajectory and (ii) faster
                 average speed on a given, snowy test track. Presented
                 work could be viewed as step towards the verification
                 of the feasibility of GP for automated development of
                 ESP. Also, we hope that the ESP, as a contributed new
                 functionality of TORCS, would enrich the experience of
                 gamers by adding an enhanced controllability of their
                 cars in challenging road conditions.",
