Breedbot: an evolutionary robotics application in digital content
Research paper Purpose of this paper This paper describe an integrated hardware/software system based on Evolutionary Robotics and its application in Edutainment context. Design/methodology/approach The system is based on a wide variety of Artificial Life techniques (Artificial Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithms, User Guided Evolutionary Design and Evolutionary Robotics). An user without any computer programming skill can determine the robot behaviour in two different ways: artificial breeding or artificial evolution. Breedbot has been used as a didactic tool in teaching Evolutionary Biology and as a "futuristic" toy by several Science Centers. The digital side of Breedbot can be downloaded on the website www.isl.unina.it/breedbot. Findings The results in this pilot study suggest that using Breedbot in educational context can be useful to improve learning in Biology Research limitations/implications As this is a pilot study, one limitation consists in the small sample consid...
