Abstract

The implementation of sequence learning in robotic platforms o ers several challenges. Deciding when to stop one action and continue to the next requires a balance between stability of sensory information and, of course, the knowledge about what action is required next. The work presented here proposes a starting point for the successful execution and learning of dynamic sequences. Making use of the NAO humanoid platform we propose a mathematical model based on dynamic field theory and reinforcement learning methods for obtaining and performing a sequence of elementary motor behaviors. Results from the comparison of two reinforcement learning methods applied to sequence generation, for both simulation and implementation, are provided.
