  abstract =     "In this paper we present a novel information-theoretic
                 measure of spatiotemporal coordination in a modular
                 robotic system, and use it as a fitness function in
                 evolving the system. This approach exemplifies a new
                 methodology formalising co-evolution in multi-agent
                 adaptive systems: information-driven evolutionary
                 design. The methodology attempts to link together
                 different aspects of information transfer involved in
                 adaptive systems, and suggests to approximate direct
                 task-specific fitness functions with intrinsic
                 selection pressures. In particular, the
                 information-theoretic measure of coordination employed
                 in this work estimates the generalised correlation
                 entropy K2 and the generalized excess entropy E2
                 computed over a multivariate time series of actuators'
                 states. The simulated modular robotic system evolved
                 according to the new measure exhibits regular
                 locomotion and performs well in challenging terrains.",
