The Woxbot Arena

Woxbot is a Java3D-based simulation of the adaptation process of a virtual robot in a virtual environment.  Genetic algorithms are used in the evolution of state machines that relate the robot's perceptual input to behavior. The small robot perceives its environment through a simulated vision process.

Woxbot software

This software allows the inspection of data resulting from an artificial evolution/adaptation process.

Release date

We expect to have software available here by February 20th, 2004. In case of any questions, please contact mirwox at acm dot org.

You can see a snapshot of the new version below, testing intersection detection between multiple Woxbots and scene objects. The new version uses the Virtual Camera environment.
