This paper proposes the use of radial basis function neural networks approach to the solution of a mobile robot orientation adjustment using reinforcement learning. In order to control the orientation of the mobile robot, a neural network control system has been constructed and implemented. Neural controller has been charged to enhance the control system by adding some degrees of award. Making use of the potential of neural networks to learn the relationships, the desired reference orientation and the error position of the mobile robot are used in training. The radial basis function based neural networks have been trained via reinforcement learning. The performance of the proposed controller and learning system has been evaluated by using a mobile robot that consists of a two driving wheels mounted on the same axis, and a free wheel on the front for balance

Mobile Robot Heading Adjustment Using Radial Basis Function Neural Networks Controller and Reinforcement Learning
BAYAR, GÖKHAN; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2008-10-28)
This paper proposes radial basis function neural networks approach to the Solution of a mobile robot heading adjustment using reinforcement learning. In order to control the heading of the mobile robot, the neural networks control system have been constructed and implemented. Neural controller has been charged to enhance the control system by adding some degrees of strength. It has been achieved that neural networks system can learn the relationship between the desired directional heading and the error posi...
Representing temporal knowledge in connectionist expert systems
Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (1996-09-27)
This paper introduces a new temporal neural networks model which can be used in connectionist expert systems. Also, a Variation of backpropagation algorithm, called the temporal feedforward backpropagation algorithm is introduced as a method for training the neural network. The algorithm was tested using training examples extracted from a medical expert system. A series of experiments were carried out using the temporal model and the temporal backpropagation algorithm. The experiments indicated that the alg...
Neural identification of dynamic systems on FPGA with improved PSO learning
Cavuslu, Mehmet Ali; KARAKUZU, CİHAN; KARAKAYA, FUAT (2012-09-01)
This work introduces hardware implementation of artificial neural networks (ANNs) with learning ability on field programmable gate array (FPGA) for dynamic system identification. The learning phase is accomplished by using the improved particle swarm optimization (PSO). The improved PSO is obtained by modifying the velocity update function. Adding an extra term to the velocity update function reduced the possibility of stucking in a local minimum. The results indicates that ANN, trained using improved PSO a...
Simple and complex behavior learning using behavior hidden Markov model and CobART
Seyhan, Seyit Sabri; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Yavaş, Mustafa (2013-03-01)
This paper proposes behavior learning and generation models for simple and complex behaviors of robots using unsupervised learning methods. While the simple behaviors are modeled by simple-behavior learning model (SBLM), complex behaviors are modeled by complex-behavior learning model (CBLM) which uses previously learned simple or complex behaviors. Both models include behavior categorization, behavior modeling, and behavior generation phases. In the behavior categorization phase, sensory data are categoriz...
Stability analysis of recurrent neural networks with piecewise constant argument of generalized type
Akhmet, Marat; Yılmaz, Elanur (2010-09-01)
In this paper, we apply the method of Lyapunov functions for differential equations with piecewise constant argument of generalized type to a model of recurrent neural networks (RNNs). The model involves both advanced and delayed arguments. Sufficient conditions are obtained for global exponential stability of the equilibrium point. Examples with numerical simulations are presented to illustrate the results.
