    20.3.2009: Demo films on Youtube

    10.01.2009 the films demonstrating robot models (mobile robot and satellite) were placed on YouTube. One can see how the robots adapt to given conditions by itself.


    The video Adaptive mobile robot on YouTube demonstrates the ability of adaptive control system of mobile robot to gradually create behavioral stereotypes in labyrinth. Namely, the robot learns by itself how to avoid obstacles without unpleasant impacts for it. In addition the robot detects that green papers are tasty in contradiction to white papers, and guesses to collect green papers purposely.Initial information given to the robot:
    a) it is «painfully» to impact by touch sensor with obstacles,
    b) it is «pleasantly» when it isn’t seen obstacles in front and
    c) it is «very pleasantly» when green paper is found under bottom side.

    The robot finds stepwise all rational movements by itself. At the start mind-less robot often meets with obstacles and ignores green papers, then it stepwise becomes clever and finds ways to avoid obstacles. When it understands that it’s pleasant to contact with green papers it starts to come across green papers purposefully.



    The video Adaptive robot-satellite on YouTube demonstrates the behavior of adaptive control system of satellite angular motion. System Pilot stepwise learns to keep satellite in predetermined angular position (on the video – to direct laser ray at the center of the target). Preliminary law of control is not preset, the control system finds this law by itself. If at the begin of its «life» satellite does not know how to control its own body – come back to predetermined position and it incidentally twists driving gears, performing chaos motions. Then as satellite stores knowledge, it becomes to understand properties of its body and more rationally uses own driving gears as long as it learns to not deviate from required position. The precision of control is restricted by robustness of driving gear and by imperfection of suspension.
