1000 Behaviors is an experimental framework for observing and evolving the movement behaviors of a robot. Consisting of nine collaborating servo motor segments that are connected by joints, the robot performs its movements based on generated and processed data to find its most optimized behavior. The movement data of the robot snake are structured in generations, behaviors and units. Each unit represents one motor and contains the values that prescribe the oscillating movements of the motors. Each behavior is formed by nine motors. And each generation consists of 1000 of these behaviors.
