Damage recovery is critical for autonomous robots that need to operate for a long time without assistance. Most current methods are complex and costly because they require anticipating each potential damage in order to have a contingency plan ready. An alternative line of thought is to let the robot learn on its own the best behavior for the current situation. If the learning process is open enough, then the robot should be able to discover new compensatory behaviors in situations that have not… CONTINUE READING
