  abstract =     "This paper deals with the evolutionary design of
                 morphology and intelligence in robotic systems and the
                 characteristics of emerged robot behaviours. A robot
                 performs a given task in a realistic virtual world
                 including physical conditions such as gravity,
                 collision and friction, and is assigned fitness
                 according to its performance. Fitness is improved by
                 genetic programming operations, and therein the robot
                 evolves to a reasonably optimal morphology and control
                 architecture. The behaviors of the robot undertaking
                 three kinds of tasks differing in the number of objects
                 to be picked up and task limit time are investigated.
                 We find various morphologies and interesting
                 intelligence emerged according to the differences in
                 the tasks and environmental conditions. We examine the
                 relation between robot morphology and behaviour, and
                 demonstrate the capability and flexibility of these
                 evolutionary robotic systems.",
