Abstract

One of the main goals of autonomous robotics is to have a robot learning and adapting to a dynamically changing environment over a long operating period. In this paper we present a proposal for such continual learning, by illustrating some of the key issues we think have to be addressed in order to have a robot learning in a constructive way. We describe an experiment where a mobile robot learns to follow a novel route, by bootstrapping from two innate behaviours. This experiment constitutes a first step towards continual learning.
