The authors consider the problem of a robot manipulator operating in a noisy workspace. The manipulator is required to move from an initial position P(i) to a final position P(f). P(i) is assumed to be completely defined. However, P(f) is obtained by a sensing operation and is assumed to be fixed but unknown. The authors approach to this problem involves the use of three learning algorithms, the discretized linear reward-penalty (DLR-P) automaton, the linear reward-penalty (LR-P) automaton and a nonlinear reinforcement scheme. An automaton is placed at each joint of the robot and by acting as a decision maker, plans the trajectory based on noisy measurements of P(f).
