  abstract =     "We present a novel evolutionary approach to robotic
                 control of a real robot based on genetic programming
                 (GP). Our approach uses GP techniques that manipulate
                 machine code to evolve control programs for robots.
                 This variant of GP has several advantages over a
                 conventional GP system, such as higher speed, lower
                 memory requirements, and better real-time properties.
                 Previous attempts to apply GP in robotics use
                 simulations to evaluate control programs and have
                 difficulties with learning tasks involving a real
                 robot. We present an on-line control method that is
                 evaluated in two different physical environments and
                 applied to two tasks--obstacle avoidance and object
                 following--using the Khepera robot platform. The
                 results show fast learning and good generalization.",
