  abstract =     "In this work we consider the generality of locomotion
                 gaits of simulated snake-like robot (Snakebot), adapted
                 (via genetic programming, GP) to both (i) a challenging
                 terrain and (ii) a partial mechanical damage.
                 Discussing the emergence of common traits in these
                 gaits, we elaborate on the strong correlation between
                 their respective genotypes. We experimentally verify
                 the generality of the adapted gaits in different
                 unexpected environmental conditions and for various
                 mechanical failures of the Snakebots. From an
                 engineering standpoint, we suppose that in response to
                 an eventual degradation of velocity, the Snakebot might
                 activate a general locomotion gait, without the need to
                 diagnose and treat the concrete underlying reason for
                 such degradation. We view this work as a step towards
                 building real Snakebots, which are able to perform
                 robustly in difficult environment.",
