  abstract =     "In this thesis, we describe the use of Genetic
                 Programming (GP) to learn obstacle detectors to be used
                 for obstacle avoidance on a mobile robot. The first
                 group of experiments focus on learning visual feature
                 detectors for this task. We provide experimental
                 results across a number of different environments, each
                 with different characteristics, and draw conclusions
                 about the performance of the learned feature detector
                 and the training data used to learn such detectors. We
                 also explore the utility of seeding the initial
                 population with previously evolved individuals and
                 subtrees, and discuss the performance of the resulting
                 individuals. We then include sensory data from a laser
                 range-finder and a camera and discuss the performance
                 of resulting individuals as we use just laser data,
                 just image data, and both in combination.",
