Example text

Below and Chap. 6). Overall, the subparts of the course of evolution in ER can take place in an asynchronous way which is why a more parallel view is better suiting for ER than the cycle view of classic EC. Particularly when performing decentralized evolution, the whole evolution process takes place onboard of robots letting mutation, recombination and selection of individual robots occur in parallel. In that case, particularly selection cannot be modeled as a global operator, but has to be performed in a local way through robot to robot communication.

Feasibility: The presence of a central unit is just infeasible in many types of real environments. The fourth axis (encapsulated – distributed) divides serial from parallel methods, encapsulated approaches being the more serial ones. In an encapsulated approach, all individuals of a population are hosted on a single robot and get evaluated sequentially. In contrast, in distributed approaches every robot hosts only one individual, the population consists of several robots and the fitness evaluation takes place in parallel.

The classic EC point of view. In classic EC, selection is usually performed by considering the “fitness” of all individuals of a population and favoring the “better” ones [201]. There, fitness is given by one or several numeric value(s) calculated directly from an individual, and it reflects the individual’s relative quality, often with respect to an optimization problem to solve. In contrast, fitness in ER is computed by observing an individual’s performance in an environment. This environmental fitness calculation can be noisy, fuzzy or time-delayed [18], [75], [151] which is why, at some places in this thesis, it will be considered a “measurement” rather than a calculation.
