Indoor autonomous navigation requires a precise and accurate localization system able to guide robots through cluttered, unstructured and dynamic environments. Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology, as an indoor positioning system, offers precise localization and tracking, but moving obstacles and non-line-of-sight occurrences can generate noisy and unreliable signals. That, combined with sensors noise, unmodeled dynamics and environment changes can result in a failure of the guidance algorithm of…

Local Planners with Deep Reinforcement Learning for Indoor Autonomous Navigation

Two different DRL navigation solutions that leverage LiDAR and depth camera information are compared and tested on a common benchmark to highlight the strengths and criticalities of each technique.



Learning Navigation Behaviors End-to-End With AutoRL

Empirical evaluations show that AutoRL policies do not suffer from the catastrophic forgetfulness that plagues many other deep reinforcement learning algorithms, generalize to new environments and moving obstacles, are robust to sensor, actuator, and localization noise, and can serve as robust building blocks for larger navigation tasks.
