  abstract =     "We present an evolution of an agent, remotely
                 operating a fast running scale model of a car. The
                 agent perceives the environment from overhead video
                 camera and conveys its actions via radio control
                 transmitter. In order to cope with the video feed
                 latency we propose an anticipatory modelling in which
                 the agent considers its actions based on the
                 anticipated state of the car. The agent is first
                 evolved offline on a software simulator and then
                 adapted online to the real world. During the online
                 evolution, the lap times improve to the values much
                 close to the values obtained from the offline
                 evolution. An online evolutionary optimisation of the
                 avoidance of a small static obstacle with a priori
                 known properties results in lap times that are
                 virtually the same as the best lap times achieved on
                 the same track without obstacles. This work can be
                 viewed as a step towards the automated design of
                 controllers of remotely operated vehicles capable to
                 find an optimal solution to various tasks in a priori
                 known environments.",
