Just got back from the US Science and Engineering Festival (www.usasciencefestival.org) as part of the BEACON (www.beacon-center.org) contingent. We were demonstrating evolution in action including evolutionary games and the COTSBots, which can evolve their own code on-line in real-time. For … Continue reading
We, students and faculty at the University of Idaho, are designing and building robots according to the COTS principle – e.g. using Commercial Off-The-Shelf products. Critical design requirements are that the robot be: Affordable (<$500) Easy and quick to assemble (e.g. … Continue reading
