Hybrid Control for Robot Navigation - A Hierarchical Q-Learning Algorithm

  title={Hybrid Control for Robot Navigation - A Hierarchical Q-Learning Algorithm},
  author={Chunlin Chen and Han-Xiong Li and Daoyi Dong},
  journal={IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine},
Autonomous mobile robots have been widely studied and applied not only as a test bed to academically demonstrate the achievement of artificial intelligence but also as an essential component of industrial and home automation. Mobile robots have many potential applications in routine or dangerous tasks such as delivery of supplies in hospitals, cleaning of offices, and operations in a nuclear plant. One of the fundamental and critical research areas in mobile robotics is navigation, which… CONTINUE READING
