Evolving Helicopter Flight Through Simulated Evolution


Julian Togelius reports at his blog the Gridswarm Project/The UltraSwarm in which "swarms of miniature helicopters that fly around and share their computing resources in order to perform tasks in a coordinated manner". See here (also there is a video of the helicopter flight).

The helicopter controller was evolved through an Evolution Strategy, a (10+23)-ES, and it is performed by a Neural Network. The Neural Network learnt how to fly without any prior knowledge of how to do it!

That controller is even better than a hand-coded PID controller available to guide the helicopter.

Take a moment to read and watch the video made by Julian, both are very very interesting. :)

Até Mais!

I will spare no efforts in doing things sell ffxi gil, the weakest living creature, by concentrating his powers on a single object, can accomplish good results while the strongest, by sell ffxi gil dispersing his effort over many chores, may fail to accomplish anything. The ordinary bat that flies around at night, who is a remarkable nim in the air, cannot take off from a level place sell ffxi gil.

The bravery of each bull is then rated with care according to the number of times he demonstrates his willingness to charge in spite of the sting of the blade Runescape gp, Henceforth will I recognize that each day I am tested by life in like manner. If I persist, if I continue to try, if I continue to charge forward, I will succeed rs gp, Your future depends on your dreams Runescape2 Gold. So go to sleep. Do not keep anything for a special occasion..
