  abstract =     "In this paper we demonstrate an efficient method which
                 divides a control task into smaller sub--tasks. We use
                 a Genetic Programming system that first learns the
                 sub-tasks and then evolves a higher--level action
                 selection strategy for deciding which of the evolved
                 lower--level algorithms should be in control. The Swiss
                 miniature robot Khepera is employed as the experimental
                 platform. Results are presented which show that the
                 robot is indeed able to evolve both the control
                 algorithms for the different lower--level tasks and the
                 strategy for the selection of tasks. The evolved
                 solutions also show robust performance even if the
                 robot is lifted and placed in a completely different
                 environment or if obstacles are moved around.",
  notes =        "ISRAM 96, We have done some experiments combining GP
                 and a subsumption architecture for robotic control. The
                 system controlled a Khepera robot learning four
                 different behaviours.",
