  abstract =     "This report describes the methodology for using a
                 genetic programming model to develop tracking
                 behaviours for autonomous, microscale robotic vehicles.
                 The use of such vehicles for surveillance and detection
                 operations has become increasingly important in defence
                 and humanitarian applications. Through an evolutionary
                 process similar to that found in nature, the genetic
                 programming model generates a computer program that
                 when downloaded onto a robotic vehicles on-board
                 computer will guide the robot to successfully
                 accomplish its task. Simulations of multiple robots
                 engaged in problem- solving tasks have demonstrated
                 cooperative behaviors. This report also discusses the
                 behavior model produced by genetic programming and
                 presents some results achieved during the study",
