Competence Acquisition Through External Feedback


Ulrich Nehmzow

Project Description:

Using a very similar controller as the one used for autonomous competence acquisition, our robots can be taught competences such as obstacle avoidance, wall following, box pushing, phototaxis or clearing space.

Teaching robots, rather than programming them has the advantage that one and the same robot can be used for a variety of different tasks, with little setup time in between (as the teaching process only takes a couple of minutes). .
