  abstract =     "Genetic Programming is used to create a reactive
                 obstacle avoidance system for an autonomous mobile
                 robot. The evolved programs take a black and white
                 camera image as input and estimate the location of the
                 lowest nonground pixel in a given column. Traditional
                 computer vision operators such as Sobel gradient
                 magnitude, median filters and the Moravec interest
                 operator are combined arbitrarily. Five memory
                 locations can also be read or written to. The first
                 evolved program is now controlling the robot.",
