Regenerating soft robots through neural cellular automata

Paper

Regeneration

Biped

Tripod

Multiped

How to run

First, install Anaconda as python 2.7 distribution on your linux machine.

# clone project   
git clone https://github.com/KazuyaHoribe/RegeneratingSoftRobots.git   

# install dependencies    
cd RegeneratingSoftRobots 
pip install -r requirements.txt

You can run the genetic algorithm using the following command:

python main_creatures.py --number_neighbors 7 --popsize 50 --generations 101 --sigma 0.03 --N 10 --threads 1 --fig_output_rate 10

To build the physical simulator "VoxCad" follow these directions: https://github.com/skriegman/evosoro

After evolving soft robots, you can test their regeneration using the following command:

python regeneration_task.py --number_neighbors 7 --popsize 50 --generations 101 --sigma 0.03 --N 10 --threads 1 --fig_output_rate 10

All arguments can be shown with the help command.

Reproduction of paper's results

We used these parameters for each experiments in both the recurrent and non-recurrent setup. Task _ID means the number of independent running.
