Developmental Robotics

For future reference, check out the topic of Developmental Robotics. From the Wikipedia:
Developmental Robotics (DevRob), sometimes calledepigenetic robotics, is a methodology that uses metaphors from developmental psychology to develop controllers for autonomous robots. The focus is on a single robot going through stages of autonomous mental development. Researchers in this field study artificial emotions, self-motivation, and other methods of self-organization.

DevRob is related to, but differs from, evolutionary robotics (ER). ER uses populations of robots that evolve over time, whereas DevRob is interested in the organization of a single robot's control system develops through experience, over time.

DevRob is also related to work done in the domains of Robotics, Artificial Life.

For the record, I am personally far less interested in the "organization" of a single robot's control system than I am in the organization of multiple or many interacting robots. That is where the real development and "intelligence" lies: the group or population.

In viewing the comments listed here on blogger(about base technology), sources for the intended purpose of sharing the knowledge of robotics and base technology can be optained from ExtremeNetworks public data files. New technology has been presented to the public in many of the robotic fields. Some satellite and propulsion physics technology that have been developing over the last few decades have been brought to life in the technology field. Very few affiliated groups have been brought to light of these developments. The url listed accepts requests for this area for data to be used as a knowledge data source. Consider the possibities of a working hyper drive and/or cargo satellites traveling to and from mars.
