  abstract =     "Although intrinsic evolution has been shown to be
                 capable of exploiting the physical properties of
                 materials to solve problems, most researchers have
                 chosen to limit themselves to using standard electronic
                 components. However, it has been previously argued that
                 because such components are human designed and
                 intentionally have predictable responses, they may not
                 be the most suitable medium to use when trying to get a
                 naturally inspired search technique to solve a problem.
                 Indeed allowing computer controlled evolution (CCE) to
                 manipulate novel physical media can allow much greater
                 scope for the discovery of unconventional solutions.
                 Last year the authors demonstrated, for the first time,
                 that CCE could manipulate liquid crystal to perform
                 signal processing tasks (i.e frequency discrimination).
                 In this paper we show that CCE can use liquid crystal
                 to solve the much harder problem of controlling a robot
                 in real time to navigate in an environment to reach an
                 obstructed destination point.",
