We study simulated Braitenberg agents controlled by a homeokinetic dynamic which evolve the ability to discriminate between two different types of objects. The free parameters of the homeokinetic control are varied by an evolutionary strategy. Two mirrored scenarios are used to show adaptation. Using a simple test scenario, we are able to evaluate whether agents are able to extract relevant information from their sensor values using only the temporal dynamics of the observed objects.
