Genetic Reinforcement Learning with Updating Table of Q-value Function: Obstacle Avoidance Robot

T Leephakpreeda*, S Limpichotipong and C Netramai

ABSTRACT: This paper presents an alternative approach of the machine learning- the genetic reinforcement learning with the updating table of the Q-value function. The proposed method in updating table is implemented to obtain the reinforcement values of the Q-value function for given state/action pairs corresponding to any policies during exploring environment. To search optimal policies, the fitness of a set of policies for genetic algorithm is defined in terms of the value of the Q-value function. The genetic algorithm and the reinforcement learning are then applied in conjunction to optimize the final control system performance. The effectiveness of the proposed methodology is demonstrated on a real application of the obstacle avoidance robot.
