Design of semi-decentralized control laws for distributed-air-jet micromanipulators by reinforcement learning

Laetitia Matignon, Guillaume J. Laurent, Nadine Le Fort-Piat
2009 2009 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  
The experimental results validate the semi-decentralized reinforcement learning method as a way to design control laws for such distributed systems.  ...  Recently, a great deal of interest has been developed in learning in multi-agent systems to achieve decentralized control.  ...  We propose to use reinforcement learning (RL) control techniques in a semi-decentralized perspective as a way to design control laws for distributed manipulation systems.  ...

Designing Decentralized Controllers for Distributed-Air-Jet MEMS-Based Micromanipulators by Reinforcement Learning

Laëtitia Matignon, Guillaume J. Laurent, Nadine Le Fort-Piat, Yves-André Chapuis
2010 Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems  
The simulation results demonstrate that the reinforcement learning method is a promising way to design control laws for such distributed systems.  ...  The control of such distributed systems is very challenging and usual approaches for contact arrayed system don't produce satisfactory results.  ...  This work was supported by the Smart Surface NRA (French National Research Agency) project (ANR 06 ROBO 0009 03).  ...

Snap-through buckling is a step further in the direction of using non-linear mechanics for actuator design.  ...  Using the experimental system, 2Hz mono-frequency is used for excitation of ER damper and the damping force is measured by load-cell.  ...  Indeed, each transducer does not need to be addressed by a centralized computer but can simply be used by some decentralized distributed controllers.  ...

The paths are controlled by factors of topography, the upper-air jet stream, and others, less well understood.  ...  By making this assumption of a “uniform distributionof probability between 0 and 1, Laplace proved his so-called “law of succession.”  ...

Motion planning by genetic algorithm for a redundant manipulator using an evaluation function based on criteria of skilled operators

T. Shibata, T. Abe, K. Tanie, M. Nose
Proceedings of 1995 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation  
In order to combine Petri nets and learning methods, we modeled Q-Learning -a variant of Reinforcement Learning -with high-level Petri nets.  ...  The controller is non-adaptive and of sliding mode type, and is designed based on the decentralized form of the dynamics of UVMS.  ...
