We discuss adaptive hardware evolution, evolvable hardware, describing system functions as logic circuits rather than programs. Evolution occurs in circuit formation and then functions are generated from the formation. In general approaches, possibility of formation is restricted by device structure, so we propose net-list evolution and apply it a wall following problem with a Khepera robot, confirming solution of the interface problem between the robot and environment using the proposed method.
