Robot Generation Through Artificial Evolution

What is RoboGen?

bot-in-hand

RoboGen™ is an open source platform for the co-evolution of robot bodies and brains. It has been designed with a primary focus on evolving robots that can be easily manufactured via 3D-printing and the use of a small set of low-cost, off-the-shelf electronic components. It features an evolution engine, and a physics simulation engine. Additionally it includes utilities for generating design files of body components to be used with a 3D-printer, and for compiling neural-network controllers to run on an Arduino microcontroller board.
