  abstract =     "In this paper, an embodied evolutionary system, able
                 to control a population of mobile robots, is proposed.
                 This system should be able to execute tasks such as
                 collision-free navigation, box pushing and predator and
                 prey. The proposed system has the following
                 characteristics: i) it extends the traditional genetic
                 programming algorithm to allow the evolution in a
                 population of physical robots; ii) the evolutionary
                 process occurs in an asynchronously way among the
                 robots in the population; iii) it is fail-safe, because
                 it allows the continuation of the evolutionary process
                 even if only one robot remains in the population of
                 robots; iv) it saves the information about the more
                 adapted individuals in a kind of memory; v) it has an
                 execution and management environment that is
                 independent of the evolutionary process.",
