Abstract:

Not Available Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes to design, implement and demonstrate a two-level learning system for autonomous devices. There are several novel aspects of the propose architecture. It incorporates the basic reflex-type behaviors of reactive systems with goal directed behavior of deliberative systems. It also offers a means for automatically programming the reflex behaviors. Initially the behaviors are demonstrated by a supervisor so that the system can function in a rudimentary way. The system then learns during operation from reinforcement provided by the supervisor. The supervisor can also demonstrate new behaviors if the system becomes stuck during operations. Secondarily, the supervisor also effects the learning rate by adjusting essential parameters. However, this whole process is evolutionary. The behaviors learned during one mission can be transferred to another mission so that supervisor interaction will become increasingly less necessary throughout the course of many similar missions. During Phase I, IAI will demonstrate the system on a UGV performing a simple mission such as navigating an office hallway containing obstacles with the objective of entering an open office door.
