  abstract =     "Many multi-robot systems are heterogeneous cooperative
                 systems, systems consisting of different species of
                 robots cooperating with each other to achieve a common
                 goal. This paper presents the emergence of cooperative
                 behaviors of heterogeneous robots by means of GP. Since
                 directly using GP to generate a controller for complex
                 behaviors is inefficient and intractable, especially in
                 the domain of multi-robot systems, we propose an
                 approach called Evolutionary Subsumption, which applies
                 GP to subsumption architecture. We test our approach in
                 an {"}eye{"}-{"}hand{"} cooperation problem. By
                 comparing our approach with direct GP and artificial
                 neural network (ANN) approaches, our experimental
                 results show that ours is more efficient in emergence
                 of complex behaviors.",
