LEARNING FROM DEMONSTRATION - Automatic Generation of Extended Behavior Networks for Autonomous Robots from an Expert’s Demonstration

Stefan Czarnetzki, Sören Kerner, Patrick Szcypior

Abstract

The recent research focus on autonomous mobile robots has greatly improved their capability to perform complex tasks, making it more and more difficult to design eligible behavior manually. Therefore this paper presents an algorithm to automatically derive a behavior network from demonstration by an expert. Different tasks are evaluated to proof the generalizability and robustness of the proposed demonstration approach.
