APVNS (Automatic Programming of Visual Navigation Systems) is an attempt to harness the computing power of Genetic Programming for applications in robotics and machine vision. The goal of the project is to get an autonomous robot to detect and avoid objects using a color mono-camera system. APVNS is being developed as Bradford Barr’s Division 3 project. This weblog will be used to discuss research in the fields of evolutionary robotics, evolutionary computing and machine vision as well as implementation details of APVNS’s systems. Check back soon for updates.
