My next robot will be based on a variable structure stochastic learning automaton (VSLA) , which is similar to the approach David L. Heiserman describes in his book How to Build Your Own Self-Programming Robot. As I am using quite a lot of mathematical notations and equations I have attached the first chapter as a pdf for better readability. I'll add more chapters later.
Don’t hesitate to ask if something is unclear. The concept itself is really not that complicated
I think some get put off of all those mathematical symbols. But I tell you, mathematicians are just lazy. We don’t write‘f is a function of x’, just f(x). We don’t write,‘1 is an element of the set of natural numbers’, just 1 ∈ℕ. We don’t write ’…for all n’, just…∀ n.
