1 Evolution, Development and Evolvable Hardware 17 Fig. 7 Illustration of Extrinsic and Intrinsic Hardware loops. 1 Extrinsic Evolvable Hardware Extrinsic Evolvable Hardware is characterised by the evaluation of the electronic circuit through simulation rather than through actual building and testing. This implies that the evolved hardware system is dependent upon the simulation scheme used, since the simulation scheme is the only environment that it knows. In this case, it may not be possible to be sure that the evolved circuit, when finally implemented and evaluated in hardware, will actually work as predicted (100% at least).

The controller performs to target in simulation, but when placed on the real robot instead of going in a straight line it moves in a slow arc! 9)! Fig. 8 Correct behaviour if model and real robot match closely. 22 Andy M. Tyrrell and Martin A. Trefzer Fig. 9 Behaviour probably due do reality gap between model and real robot. So using Extrinsic Evolvable Hardware and models is fine, but we have to be very careful about the models we use and the final environment our system will be working in. Of course using Intrinsic Evolvable Hardware has potential timing issues (in some cases executing large populations of individuals is quicker in simulation than on the actual hardware) and there can be properties that change from one hardware platform to another (motor slippage on a four-wheeled robot for example) which might make an evolved solution only suitable for one platform.
