Robotic Controllers
Chapter 3

Introduction

In this chapter, we are going to use the knowledge we gained from the previous chapter to solve a real world problem using a genetic algorithm. The real world problem we will be working on is designing robotic controllers.

Genetic algorithms are often applied to robotics as a method of designing sophisticated robotic controllers that enable a robot to perform complex tasks and behaviors, removing the need to manually code a complicated robotic controller. Imagine you have built a robot that can transport goods around a warehouse. You have installed sensors, which allow the robot to see its local environment, and you have given it wheels so it can navigate based on input from its sensors. The problem ...
