Boxcar evolution

Watch a car evolve before your very eyes.

Boxcar 2D Genetic Algorithm Car Evolution is an interactive car design game from an “evolutionary” perspective. The program learns to build a car using a genetic algorithm. It starts with a population of 20 randomly generated shapes with wheels and runs each one to see how far it goes. The cars that go the furthest reproduce to produce offspring for the next generation. The offspring combine the traits of the parents to hopefully produce better cars. The generations keep reproducing to continue the lifecycle of your “species” of car. Try leaving it on overnight and see what’s driving in the morning.
