Abstract

In this paper we describe a model of cooperation in Evo- lutionary Robotics (ER) derived by animal research on Corvids. In re- cent years many researchers have proposed models of ER which are bio- inspired. The main source of inspiration has come from social insects, such as ants. Inspiration may come also from other representatives in the animal kingdom, that are quite di®erent from insects such as primates or corvids, thus producing di®erent models that can address di®erent issues. The work presented here starts from works inspired by social insects and then describes an ER model which is built on corvids behavior, that ad- dresses the evolution of cooperation, showing how di®erent bio-inspired models can be useful to study di®erent issues.
