  abstract =     "Inspired by the efficient method of locomotion of the
                 rattlesnake Crotalus cerastes, the objective of this
                 work is to investigate the emergent properties of the
                 automatically designed through genetic programming (GP)
                 fastest possible (sidewinding), robust and adaptive
                 locomotion gaits of simulated snake-like robot
                 (Snakebot). Considering the notion of 'emergent
                 intelligence' as the ability of Snakebot to achieve its
                 goals (of moving fast) without the need to be
                 explicitly taught about how to do so, we present the
                 empirical results on the emergence of sidewinding
                 locomotion as fastest locomotion of the Snakebot. The
                 emergent properties of evolved robust sidewinding gaits
                 featuring desired velocity characteristics of Snakebot
                 in challenging environment are discussed. The ability
                 of Snakebot to adapt to partial damage by gradually
                 improving its velocity characteristics, and the
                 emergent properties of obtained adaptive gaits are
                 elaborated. Concluding on the practical implications of
                 the analogy between the emergent properties of the
                 robust and the adaptive locomotion gaits, this work
                 could be viewed as a step towards building real
                 Snakebots, which are able to perform robustly in
                 difficult environment.",
