  abstract =     "The work presented in this thesis aims at
                 investigating the potential of a proposed methodology
                 to create a cognitive control architecture for a
                 humanoid robot. This architecture comprises three
                 hierarchical layers: the reactive layer, the model
                 building layer, and the reasoning layer. The
                 architecture is built on techniques from the field of
                 evolutionary computation, and more specifically
                 evolutionary algorithms. Based on very simple models of
                 organic evolution, these algorithms can be applied to
                 various problems such as combinatorial optimisation
                 problems or learning tasks. The field of artificial
                 intelligence is discussed from a robotics viewpoint.
                 The roles of different paradigms in AI research are
                 considered, and so are the principles of embodiment and
                 situatedness, which are fundamental in the behaviour
                 based robotics approach. Several evolutionary
                 experiments performed on real, physical humanoid robot
                 platforms are presented. These are presented mainly to
                 motivate the use of simulated evolution for control
                 programming of robots. In addition, these experiments
                 constitute a subset of the necessary building blocks of
                 the proposed cognitive humanoid robot architecture,
                 outlined in this thesis. The experiments include sound
                 localisation, two instances of machine vision, hand-eye
                 coordination, coordination of actuator motions in a
                 robot foot joint, and two instances regarding learning
                 and adaptivity.",
