Fuzzy cognitive map (FCM) is a well-established model of control and decision making based on neural network and fuzzy logic methodologies. It also serves as a powerful systematic way for analyzing real-life problems where tens of known, partially known, and even unknown factors contribute to complexity of a system. FCM-based inference requires a neural(More)
Online navigation with known target and unknown obstacles is an interesting problem in mobile robotics. This article presents a technique based on utilization of neural networks and reinforcement learning to enable a mobile robot to learn constructed environments on its own. The robot learns to generate efficient navigation rules automatically without(More)
Given the importance of an accurate wind speed forecasting for efficient utilization of wind farms, and the volatile nature of wind speed data including its non-linear and uncertain nature, the wind speed forecasting has remained an active field of research. In this study, the non-linearity of wind speed is tackled using artificial neural network and its(More)
Path planning with obstacles avoidance in dynamic environments is a crucial issue in robotics. Numerous approaches have been suggested for the navigation of mobile robots with moving obstacles. In this paper, about 50 articles have been reviewed and briefly described to offer an outline of the research progress in motion planning of mobile robot approaches(More)
Sampling-based path planning methods for autonomous agents are one of the well-known classes of robotic navigation approaches with significant advantages including ease of implementation and efficiency in problems with high degrees of freedom. However, there are some serious drawbacks like inability to plan in unknown environments, failure in complex(More)
