This work deals with a robot where no domain knowledge is given at all. The genetic algorithms used to control these robots are deeply embodied within their environment. This embodiment means that a very simple genetic algorithm is able to control smart materials like shape memory alloys without any previous domain knowledge about them. The control and exploitation of smart materials is also extended to stereolithographic models. The final outcome of this research will be a robot that is made entirely out of smart materials. This robot will be able to perform a variety of tasks from locomotion, to damage recovery, and even optimising its shape to get the best reception.
