Autonomous Hierarchical POMDP Planning from Low-Level Sensors

Last modified: 2013-06-29


There are currently no strong methods for planning in a stochastic domain, with low-level sensors that are limited and possibly inaccurate. Existing architectures have flaws that make their use in a real-world environment impractical. We propose an architecture that utilizes POMDPs to create a hierarchical planning system. This system is capable of developing macro-actions that can expedite planning on a large scale, and can learn new plans quickly and efficiently, without deliberate design by the programmer.
