                 years, there are many outstanding challenges that need
                 to be addressed before it will be widely deployed for
                 developing useful software. In this paper we suggest a
                 method for the automatic creation of concurrent control
                 software using Linear Genetic Programming (LGP) and a
                 `divide and conquer' approach. The method involves
                 decomposing the whole problem into a multi-task
                 solution with multiple inputs and multiple outputs -
                 similar to the process used to implement embedded
                 control solutions. We describe the necessary
                 architecture of typical embedded control systems and
                 their relevance to this work, the software evolution
                 scheme used and lastly demonstrate the technique for an
                 embedded software problem, namely a washing machine
