In this chapter we introduce the area of research that attempts to study the evolution of communication in embodied agents through adaptive techniques, such us artificial evolution. More specifically, we illustrate the theoretical assumptions behind this type of research, we present the methods that can be used to realize embodied and communicating artificial agents, and we discuss the main research challenges and the criteria for evaluating progresses in this field.
