A Case Study of the De Novo Evolution of a Complex Odometric Behavior in Digital Organisms

Figure 1

Trajectories of evolved case-study organism on paths experienced during evolution.

The organism's trajectory is shown with the black line, beginning at the green star and ending at the red octagon (note: in some cases the organism doubles back along its own path). On the left-turn path (A), the organism traverses the path, steps off the end and stops to finish replication. On the right-turn path (B), the organism has retraced its steps from the end of the path to its final location (red octagon).
