This book constitutes the thorougly refereed and revised post-workshop proceedings of the First European Workshop on Evolutionary Robotics, EvoRobot '98, held in Paris, France in April 1998. The 15 revised full papers presented outline the state of the art in this new interdisciplinary area of research and development. The introductory paper gives a survey of the use of evolutionary computing techniques for the automatic design of adaptive robots.
