Based on evolutionary computation (EC) concepts, we developed an adaptive evolutionary planner/navigator (EP/N) as a novel approach to path planning and navigation. The EP/N is characterized by generality, flexibility, and adaptability. It unifies off-line planning and online planning/navigation processes in the same evolutionary algorithm which 1) accommodates different optimization criteria and changes in these criteria, 2) incorporates various types of problem-specific domain knowledge, and 3) enables good tradeoffs among near-optimality of paths, high planning efficiency, and effective handling of unknown obstacles. More importantly, the EP/N can self-tune its performance for different task environments and changes in such environments, mostly through adapting probabilities of its operators and adjusting paths constantly, even during a robot's motion toward the goal
