A biologically inspired solution for an evolved simulated agent
Biologically inspired designs can improve the design of artificial agents. In this paper we explain and explore the role of directional light sensors from an Evolutionary Robotics perspective using a dynamical systems approach. It was found that by using directionally specific sensors in the agent, there was a simplification of the neural controller employed. This simplification helped not only with the analysis of this type of controller but also improved the behavioural performance of the agents, thereby showing a good example of the ecological balance principle.
