In order for an autonomous machines, one solution is to build a state child and leave their responsibility to learn to move and form. This testing different suites of movements.
For performing robots, needless to conceive as shown from the start. Better to give them time to acquire themselves their own abilities, says a researcher at the University of Vermont. According to which, like humans, evolutionary robots eventually learn to move faster than those designed in fixed form. But also to deal with an unexpected situation without losing their capacity. To confirm this theory, the Project has developed virtual robots capable of evolving in a 3D environment.

The whole, depending on its structure, specific to each.
