Robot in a Maze
This is a homework for the Machine Learning Course that I am taking right now at my University.
The homework uses genetic algorithms in order to enable a robot to find its way out of a randomly generated maze.
The assignment is done in Haskell.
make run to build and start the application. The GUI is pretty
simple to use.
The GUI shows a maze and each robot as it tries to go out of the maze. It is very funny to watch how the robot gets stuck then a random mutation evolves it to a new strategy and so on.
The application will also dump several informations to a file. Use
./plot.sh to plot them nicely or to learn what is dumped.
The maze was generated with Sidewinder's algorithm. The maximum fitness is
100 * (n^2 - t) + 50 * t + 20 * n where
n is the size
of the maze and
t is the length of the escape path.
