Researchers at the University of Reading have developed over many years some simple mobile robots that explore an environment they perceive through simple ultrasonic sensors. Information from these sensors has allowed the robots to learn the simple task of moving around while avoiding dynamic obstacles using a static set of fuzzy automata, the choice of which has been criticised, due to its arbitrary nature. This paper considers how a dynamic set of automata can overcome this criticism. In addition, a new reinforcement learning function is outlined which is both scalable to different numbers and types of sensors. The innovations compare successfully with earlier work.
